First PC Build

I'm going to build my first gaming PC with a max of 1000 dollars.

This is my current list:
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/jbgoedebeste/saved/4hB0

I don't pick an ssd because I wanted to focus on my video card and I picked the 8350 apart from the 8320 because I don't want to overclock to get the same performance.
I also wanted to upgrade later to Crossfire the video card or eventually get another card when needed.

Is there anything that needs to be changed or am I ready to go?

    I think you're ready to go. :)
  2. it is a revision of your build, with better price/performance parts selection
    amd970 chipset isnt good enough for dual GPU because it will run at 16x/4x
    990FX run CFX at 16x/16x
    and i add 280X + Seasonic GOLD 750W

    Because I just looked at the specs that I needed and picked the cheapest ones, it was apperently not the best. I didn't know very much about motherboard. Thanks!
