That build is good but can be improved...

Change the processor to Core i5 750
And the case to Antec 900 or equivalent...

You will save a lot which will enable you to buy a better card which is most important for a gaming PC.

Buy a Radeon 5850 then...

The 860 had no performance increase for gaming. I'm gonna have to agree with shubham1401. Unless you do any other type of CPU intensive tasks, I'd stick to the I5.

Also suggest an Antec 902
Why Vista w/ Win 7 shipping from newegg in 8 days (for 10/22 delivery)
The 2 TB WD Black is a top performer but the 1 TB model pales next to the competition

Don't forget to check the sound and temperature charts

Some better drives are $20 cheaper too.

If I was gonna spend that much on a Mobo w/ that CPU, I think I'd rather have theRampage II Extreme w/ an 900 series CPU. With the extra $100, get a 5850.
