But with the 630 GPU I don't think the gamer is that serious. It's like me taking my van to the drag strip. It will work, but it's not a dragster.

But why the i7 for gaming? It's a great choice but for games it seems the GPU matters. Here's some reading.
"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "

Most importantly, if you guys can shed some light on GPUs and which ones can do which settings on which games, just to give me the ability to estimate them on my own for future references.. will be awesome!
