Default Gaming rig, 800 budget.

Treating myself to a new PC since this current gaming PC is now 5 years old, it's served me well, HD4870 still handling Metro 2033 on high settings.

Rather then using cash to upgrade over time, I prefer to make it as "future-proof" as possible, then put up with playing games on med settings (though in fairness this current pc can handle the games I play on high) and after a few years and buying a whole new PC.

I don't know whether to get an SSD or not to get one and put the money on a better GPU. I'm not really much of a CPU overclocker if I do it at all, my Q6600 is at 3ghz, so nothing taxing.

Here's my proposed build with an SSD in it.. (plan is to OC the HD7950 to the HD7970's default settings, so 800mhz to 925mhz and 5000mhz to 5500mhz.),,
