Hi. I'm planing on building this PC in couple weeks, maybe after the HD 5000 series comes out. (hoping the price will be dropped).
I'm really trying to stay around 1000$.
Please let me know what you think.
And any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I think latter on i'll be getting a 2nd GPU and doing Crossfire.
Please and Thank you.

Rosewill PSUs arent great, i suggest the 750TX from corsair its the same price after MIR and corsair is known for significantly better PSUs than rosewill

A samsung F3 will outperform the caviar blue easily for $2 more and provides 500GB of storage space

Normally i would say dont forget to combo, but there are no good combos this month at all, im rather disappointed, some good ones should show up next week hopefully once they redo their combos.

edit: think less type faster

Since its a gaming build why not use an i5 750 + p55 mb ?

This should save you enough money to bring the 5870 into the budget much sooner

Thanks to all of you for your suggestions. Still trying to work things out :p .
So far, i have changed the HDD, and the PSU.

I was thinking about i5 750, But because of the lack of Hyper Threading won't it lower the performance?, and is there a chance that it might bottleneck with 5870?
