Ok I've actually decided to build my own PC from scratch. Obviously with Shogun 2 in mind.

This is the system I have so far 'e-assembled':

Motherboard - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=15077

CPU - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=15284

CPU Cooler - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=8849

RAM - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=13931

Graphics Card - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=16300

USB 3.0 card(do I even need this lol?): http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=16136

Case - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=14808

Your thoughts would be highly appreciated.

1 - Is there a way to tinker with some items to save money but get the same sort of performance?
2 - I can't really find a proper Case. Can you guys recommended one? I prefer one that has a lot of cooling potential but with a good enough price tag.
3 - Are all the items I selected compatible with each other and the MoBo? Will I get any so called "bottle neck affect'?
4 - Will this rig run Shogun 2 on ULTRA!!!!! As in ULTRA not just ultra but ULTRAAA!!!! lol :P

Sorry for too many Q's.

Also, can anyone recommended a good PSU? And a DVD/Blu ray drive?

EDIT - Btw I have a 1680x1050 monitor.
