Hey guys, considering a new computer. These are the parts I'm interested in. Could I get some feedback on whether or not they'd be good for running GW2 on high (maybe ultra?) and other recent games.

Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Motherboard

Intel Core i5 3570k 3.40 GHZ 6MB

Patriot 8GB Viper 3 1600 MHz (2x4GB)

MSI GeForce GTX660 Ti

Corsair 650W PSU

It'll all cost around 1,100. Is it a good deal, or is one of these things off?

Is a nice rig, only thing I would add is a SSD 240gb and maybe a GTX 670.

I have similar setup with ssd + 670 and run with max/ultra and supersampling.

I also went with 750w psu just incase I wanted to add more gpu's later.

Yes, they will run GW2 on high - there isn't really an "ultra" unless you consider "supersampling" to be ultra. I have a similar setup (i5-3570K, HD7870) and run everything on "max" at 1920x1080 except sampling is "native", not "super". (And personally, I can't see that supersampling makes much difference at 1920x1080 - certainly not enough difference to be willing to pay enough for hardware that would run it smoothly :) )
