Good day!
I'm looking to have a rig build for me and I've done lots of research on individual parts. Honestly though, I'm just an eager novice and wanted some of your sagely advice!
Currently, I am looking at having Ibuypower or Cyberpower build the system. Any better suggestions?

Case: PSI CycloneX Gaming Tower Case
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 920 Processor (4x 2.66GHz/8MB L3 Cache)
Additional cooling: Liquid CPU Cooling System w/ 120mm Radiator
PowerDrive Level 1 - Up to 10% Overclocking
Ram: 6 GB [2 GB X3] DDR3-1333 Corsair XMS3 Dominator w/DHX technology
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 5850 - 1GB (will Crossfire down the line)
MOBO: SUS P6T -- Intel X58
800 Watt -- Power Supply SLI Ready
750 GB HARD DRIVE -- 16M Cache, 7200 RPM, 3.0Gb/s
22X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive
NZXT Sentry 2 LCD Touch Screen Fan Controller /w Temperatures Display

I am wondering if a Killer Xeno Pro Gaming Network Card w/ Game Networking Acceleration is worth the money for online gaming or not.

Do you see any possible bottle necks?

Thanks everyone!

without building ur own, i would reccomend digital storm:

and also, if you can, get a f3 in there, but aside from that, i cant recommend much.

Pardon my ignorance, whats an F3?
Nm, after a little research i found its a Hard drive. Thanks for the recommendation.

And i did some research on the "Killer Xeno Pro Gaming Network Card w/ Game Networking Acceleration" it looks like a waste of money!
