Need help building computer. Will this $768 config handle PS2?


Hi everyone. Lannce here, PS-1 vet from Emerald.

I'm a recent college grad with a 3 year-old macbook, and I'm eager to build my first gaming rig, hopefully in the $700-900 price range.

I'm building this computer almost specifically for Planetside 2. The only other function will be for Adobe Creative Suite products. I might be interested in hooking this up to my 40" LED HDMI tv, but in all likelihood will probably end up buying another monitor for around $200.

Anyway, after all my research, this is the rig I am currently considering. Please advise. I'm not entirely sure everything will fit. I also need help selecting an appropriate power supply (which is not included in list below)

GPU - $190
ZOTAC ZT-50709-10M GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
CPU - $215
Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i53570
Motherboard - $135
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
SSD (going to try going without HDD) - $105
SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC128B/WW
Memory - $46
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
Case - $52
ZALMAN Z9 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Optical Drive - $16
SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM SATA Model SH-222BB/BEBE - OEM

Total Cost without power supply: $768

What settings do you think I'll be able to run reliably on PS2 with this rig? Also, any idea what kind of power supply I need, or how I can go about finding that out?

Thanks PSU community!
