  1. That build seems a little imbalanced, i would either drop down to a core i5 or go for a more powerful video card. The 9800gt is a pretty outdated card. If your looking for a gaming pc under $1000, your going to want to go i5.
  2. Yeah drop the i7 for the i5 or even go AMD and bring up the GPU to at least a 4850. Also you don't need such a powerful PSU as it will be a waste of money. I would suggest a LiteON optical drive as they are cheap and run very well.
  3. As others have said, your build seems rather unbalanced for a gaming PC.

    What monitor do you intend to use (resolution) and should that be included in the budget? What about an OS?
