I'm new to the forum and after reading several threads getting ideas on my first build i figured I'd join and get thoughts on whether or not I've made good choices. This will be my first time ever building a computer and is primarily for gaming.
My budget was between 800-850 was hoping to favor the 800 side but this was about the best I could do. Also, will I need any extra misc cables, fans, heatsinks etc etc. Like I said, this will be my first build and I'd like to get all the right parts and make sure I'll have everything I need to get it up and running when I receive everything. Thanks for any help that ya'll can give me.

Do you plan to overclock? If so, you need a decent HSF. Overall your system is pretty well rounded. However, you might need a beefier CPU for 1080p gaming. Besides that, an extra fan or two ensures stability.
I know what overclocking is but have no idea how to do it. I'm new to the computer gaming scene. I'm hoping everything I have right now will run SC2 and battlefield smoothly. I have plans of upgrading in the distant future so right now I'm just trying to get started. I'm open to suggestions on changing which components I get as long as It stays in the 800-850 range with an OS.
