is this a good build? i plan to upgrade to two vid cards later. and add more ram which is the reason i added the heavy duty power supply and made it xfire compatable. i play games like far cry2, avp, and empire total war. i also need to be able to play starcraft 2 and diablo3 when they come out. any suggestions that could help me out would be great.

also i have a copy of win xp i would like to use it and save the 100 bucks on win 7... but will that mess with my gaming ability. if so how and can i get away with it for a while and then upgrade later?

i did this build on cyber power

I was planning from ordering from cyberpower a little over a month ago but I realized a $1300 cyberpower pc can be built yourself on newegg for about $200 less with better quality parts that you know will do the job. How much was the build on cyberpower?
