I'm planning on ordering parts for a new PC next week. This will be my first build but my intention is to get a gaming rig (COD: MW, Fallout 3, Crysis, etc). I've researched and came up with my own build. I was hoping for some input from the community on what should be changed, added, or if this is a decent build.

I think your build looks good. It is the same parts that I purchased for mine except I took some of Admiral's suggestions. I purchased a OCZ fatal1ty over the modxstream thought since it got better reviews. I didn't really care if it was modular or not.
