New PC Build Need Help on parts $1200 budget

Hey I'm building a new system before i head back to college, so my budget is pretty slim but I'm able to squeeze out a max of $1,200. Can i get some advice on this build i am using it for homework, and Crysis / Eve-Online. I have absolutely no idea on a good MOBO for this build so any advice there will be awesome.

  1. There's a build advice form in my signature that you could fill out, but the changes I would make for now are switching out the 5830s for a single 5870, and changing the HDD to a Spinpoint.

    GPU: XFX Radeon HD 5870 -$400-
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB -$55-
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P -$185-
