is this a good gaming pc for my budget? Im almost certain that the 750w is overkill but I was thinking about going crossfire later on when the games get heavy graphic oriented.

for crossfire its not overkill...if you over clock even more so. not to mention having some extra wattage will allow for capacitor wear giving your system a longer life.

OC that baby yourself
Get 850W IMO, more headroom for OC as atoic mentions
Get the ASUS LK voer the extreme 4 , the lk has better phases
The 212 EVO is like 1-3 c cooler, your call
Get a 7200rpm 3.5inch, 64mb cache HDD, 1tb platter
Made a case change but your choice [i like the black interior of the enforcer over the grey interior of the 922, also cooler looking :) ]
