    Hi and welcome to the forums. I personally would go with an Intel based system perhaps a Sandy Bridge i3 or an i5 if you can up the budget. Also the graphics card you have chosen is a good mid range card but given the system is primarily for gaming I would lose the SSD and put the savings towards an i5-2500K and better video card.

    What's your budget for this build? Would you consider building the PC yourself? Do you need a copy of Windows 7 and do you really need a Blu Ray drive?

    Also, i would try and go liquid cooled on your processor if possible... might save you from having to install 5 fans in the PC.
