I've made this build and it comes out just at $1100 with shipping. I was wondering if its good for gaming, homework, streaming, and other high school / college kid stuff.

Let me know if anything doesn't work together. I was also wondering if I need any extra heat sinks, or fans.

I also have some questions about this build...

Would it be worth the extra money to invest in an Intel i7 930 with the according MoBo, or is this fine for what I want?

I also want to make sure that this is completely upgradeable, and will function strong for me for 5 or 6 years, with occasional upgrades to keep it going. Will it meet my needs?

No need for i7 series outside workstation builds. Extra threads gives you zero benefit outside those cases.

Save some money and get this PSU/HD combo instead. A 650W can xfire 5850's fine.

You can also get the GA 790 UD4 mobo instead. It's $15 less after rebate, and there's no real difference.
