Alright I'm not overly tech savvy or anything but im trying to build my first gaming system. Mainly i want to do a decent amount of gaming. Probably WoW (I know this won't be a problem with this system), COD, Starcraft II, and so on. I want to make sure that my system is really future-proof so that i don't have to keep upgrading every year or so. I probably won't actually buy this until about december or so when i come into some more money. Here's what i have so far:

-AMD Phenom ii x4 965 3.4GHz

-MSI 890FXA-gd70 AM3

-G.Skill 4GB(2x2GB) 1600

-Sapphire Vapor-x 5770

-Samsung F3 1TB 7200 RPM

-Antec 1200 Case

-Antec CP 1000W

-Light-On CD/DVD Burner

Thats all about $1,100 after combo deals and MIR. I will eventually get another video card and crossfire them. Is this a good build or is there something i should change?

If it's not until December then please post around 2 weeks before purchase, new graphics cards are coming out and sandy bridge and all that.

I can give you advice not to get the Antec 1200, it's an old case and you can get a HAF 932 (black edition) for the same price :p  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, that power supply is crap. Get a corsair HX850

or AX850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or SPG 800
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or XFX 850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

wait a second.. 750W will do :) 

Way better monitor
