I7 920/ Radeon 5850 -- $1200 Gaming Rig

Think I've settled on the components for my new machine, and found some great combo deals on newegg. Looking to see if there any obvious upgrades I've missed or mistakes made. Seems like a great machine for the price!

Thanks!

    Case, Cooler suited for up to moderate overclocks, PSU I dunno.

    See this article on GB vs Asus USB 3 implementations, I'd go Asus:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/usb-3.0-performance,2490-7.html

    Is the ModXStream similar to the GameXTream ?

    If so, 7.5 performance rating would worry me. I'd recommend the Antec 650

    Which Asus board would you recommend? I read good reviews on the Gigabyte I chose, but have heard of the difference in USB implementation. If the price and features are similar, I'll switch.

    Thanks for the response!
