Budget:I would to keep it at around $900-$1100(The Cheaper the better)

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: By the end of this month

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming,Multimedia(Videos, Music, and Photo's),Web Browsing, Photo editing(photoshop, etc).

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com for the parts, Amazon for my computer case(newegg's shipping is like $70+ for me for a case alone)

PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type I'm set on the Core i5-750 for CPU. GPU I was debating on the hd 4850x2,hd 5770, and the HD 5850. 4Gb of RAM.
Two hard drives - One for OS, and the other for Everything Else.

OVERCLOCKING: I am going to be doing moderate overclocking on the i5. Maybe 2.6-->3.5ghz.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I was debating on buying a SSD for my OS drive I was wondering if you guys think its worth it? (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167025).
