How does this look for a final build $1200

Here is my build. This is going to be used for gaming and I would like the option to add another hd4870 in the future. Plan to play games at high res 1600 or greater.

Any suggestions on how to reduce the price or make components better for same price?

Here is my list.

Thanks for looking.

  3. Get a SATA burner, not the IDE one.
    usually a wired mouse for gaming to eliminate lag.


    build looks good.
  4. ^^ agreed
    Get Sata drive

    Also switch 500AAKS w/ 640 AAKS, much faster

    Only other thought i have is get a 9800GX2. Some are cheap (evga) and are good for the $$$. but some will say go w/ 4870 cause its newer, less heat, and power etc. ur call
