Input for a $1000 Gaming Rig.

Im planning my build to replace my pre-built Gateway DX-4200-09(suckage for gaming)Here is my old system specs

CPU: 9100e 1.8ghz quad-core
MoBo: Generic Crap
GPU: 8800gt
HDD: Samsung 640g 7200rpm
PSU: Generic 350W
OS: Windows 7 64bit/ Retail not OEM
RAM: 4gigs ddr2 800

Yeah i know i made a mistake to get a prebuilt but my last one went out and had to get this as an emergency set me back 350usd.

Below is what Ive selected for my new build.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGMBOX

MOBO: MSI 790X-G45 AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail CPU/MOBO Combo$229.98

GPU :XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity

PSU : OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply GPU/PSU Combo $349.98

RAM : OCZ Gold Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G10664GK $84.00

HDD :Western Digital Caviar Blue WD2500AAJS 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $44.99

Monitor: ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI - $179.99

This total is $888.98 not including a new case thats 20usd plus for shipping. Its not like i really need a new monitor but im tired of missing my shows while gaming on my 42inch 1080p and playing on my low res monitor to.

I prefer to stay with AMD but will listen to why i should buy the I7 when the decent Mobos with Dual PCI express slots are outrageous in pricing. also the build is a must with the 5850.
