IMO, if you are going to get a X4 965, may as well pick up a used rig in BST section. The X4 is still comparable to FX Bulldozer in games but when compare to the new Intel, it's at a disadvantage. The situation is like buying a new car that's already 2 years old in terms of performance while for a tad more money you can get one that's freshly redesigned. As for the video card, it's no 560TI but you can use it for now until you can afford to upgrade to like a 660 when it comes out later. While, I'm no expert, going with an older CPU platform, I feel that buying a new GPU down the road is moot since it may get bottlenecked.
