Configured this build in a cart on newegg using various combo deals and the cheapest utility parts I could find. Please rate or speak up if there's any compatibility issues or low quality parts included I should think twice about.

The total price is $817 after shipping, is this a pretty good price for the performance I would get for gaming (SC2, Diablo 3) and ample opportunity for future upgrades?
Thanks for any help

Your links are broken, and as you labeled nothing I have no clue.

Yep. You either need more MB or less PSU... that one is not bad at all I think, but you can likely save there.

The Caviar Blue may be cheap and reliable, but it's slow and possibly runs a bit warm.

I would look to Crossfire at one point. The motherboard says Crossfire/SLI ready, what's a good alternative then?

And I want the PSU to be a little high because of future upgrades
