Thinking About my next Build...

I'm currently considering my next build, which is right now planned for early July.

I do not plan on overclocking, I prefer Gigabyte mobos, I'm planning on an Intel CPU, Radeon GPU, and my current budget is between $800 - $1000 including OS (Win7 Pro 64 bit) and other software I need.

I already have a 600 Watt SeaSonic modular PSU, a DVD Burner (SATA 3gb), and a 500GB Western Digital HDD (SATA 3gb & big enough for me) I'm going to reuse from my old system.

As for the rest of the hardware, this is what I'm thinking right now, but all plans are subject to change in the next four months:

Intel i5-3350P Ivy Bridge
GIGABYTE GA-H77-DS3H H77 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7950 Video Card
G.SKILL Ripjaws 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory

Opinions?

You could swap the Cpu for a Amd equvielent, and spend the extra on a slightly better Power Supply or Graphics.
