Hi guys, I'm planning to build an i7930 computer. This will be my first build and my goals for this computer are for it to be 2 steps above average(just in case i want to upgrade anything in the future), quite fast, a moderate gaming rig for Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne and possibly Diablo 3(when it gets released some time in the future), and no overclocking because I want it to last me at least 3-5 years. I have the list of my parts and I want to see if i can get some feedback/opinions/advice on the build I've researched. Thanks! :) 

- EVGA 121-BL-E756-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 Micro ATX SLI Micro Intel Motherboard
- Intel Core I7-930
- CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2
- HIS H467QR1GH Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3
- CORSAIR XMS3 6GB Triple Channel 1600 DDR3
- ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLS/B/AS 24X DVDRW Drive
- Seagate Barracuda 250gb 7200rpm
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
- AZZA Solano 1000R CSAZ-1000R Full Tower

These are the changes I would make for a gaming computer.

CPU: Intel Core i5 760 2.8 GHz
Motherboard: Asus P7P55D-E Pro
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4 GB DDR3 CL7 1600 MHz
GPU: Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic Platinum Edition
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB 7200 RPM
PSU: XFX 650W PSU

This will cost a bit more but is more future proof and more optimised for gaming.

Thank you for the suggestion :) , but I forgot to mention that I really want to keep the EVGA motherboard and Intel core i7 930 combo and have triple channel RAM. Also I'm not the type of person who would have 200-300gb of music/videos, so a 250gb HDD will do just fine for me. I also forgot to mention that I'm most concerned about the PSU I should get. I do plan to use SLI/Crossfire in the future, but I don't want to spend unnecessary money on watts that I'm not going to use, so do you have any suggestions for how many watts I will need? Thanks :)

Only problems I see with your original build is the Videocard (your gonna need something faster, get a 5770 at least, or a GTX 460 if you can swing it), the PSU (corsair is great, but get a 650 at least), and I dunno much about that case, but it looks like a knockoff Antect 900, so hopefully it cools as well.
