I run win 7? how can It be so large? the DVD holds about 4GB? Does it just "reserve" the space without using it?

The Windows disk contains the files in a compressed format. One of the first things the Windows installation process does is copy the files to your disk and expand them. Then you're [hopefully] downloading updates for it, in particular Service Pack 1. My Windows directory at this time is 33.5 GB, although I've seen it as low as 20 GB in the past.

If you want to see a graphical representation of exactly what is eating up space on your SSD, you could try TreeSize. It's free and pretty cool. Just go to the Scan menu and select the disk.

(That's my own 128 GB SSD, by the way.)

What are your goals? Like, are you hoping for 60 FPS at 1080p with low/medium/high details? The GT 640 is pretty low-end, and while it will certainly run the game adequately at low details, it's likely going to struggle a bit at 1920x1080. If you don't expect much, it may be fine. The i5-4460 is a great CPU for Guild Wars 2, though the game may remain GPU-bound on this system most of the time.

An SSD is a nice thing to have after your system's vitals are already taken care of. It's only going to speed up loading times somewhat, it won't improve the game's actual framerate performance. I'd personally drop the SSD for now and put that money toward a better video card. You can always add an SSD later.

What do you mean when you say your internet is "crashing?" If you're having outages, you should contact your ISP because that's not supposed to happen. If you're using up all your bandwidth during a download it will just cap out at 1.3 MB/s or so, which is what it's supposed to do.

Your download/upload speeds are pretty much average, at least by American ISP standards. It's comparable to mine and should run games just fine.

Upgrading from a gtx 770, can't wait for the 980 ti to be here. Will a i5-4670k bottleneck it at all?

There are some games out there (ahem, GW2), where you can hit a CPU bottleneck sometimes no matter what you have.

The i5-4670K is a great CPU and an appropriate one for your system, though.

It seems like most decent new PSU models today, based on good quality OEM components, end up being 80 Plus Gold anyway. The crazy price premiums today are for 80 Plus Platinum and Titanium units. I personally think Gold is a pretty good place to be now.

That's not to say that I'm terribly concerned with the extra 2–4% power efficiency over Silver or Bronze, Gold-rated products just tend to be the ones that are getting the best reviews today.
