I need a video card, Mobo and ram. (I have everything else)
I already have the CPU (i7 3770k)

My budget is $800 (CDN)

Primary use is for gaming (75%) and CAD (25%). 
I'm not an overclocker. I may/may not OC in the future. 

I prefer nvidia so I'm thinking the GTX 670. Is there one 670 that is better than another?

What about Ram? 8 or 16GB? (I didn't link any ram cause I have no clue)
What about this Mobo? Can I do better?


Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you.

Just get a GTX 670 with a good cooler and you will be fine. Mobo is up to you and what you want feature wise.
