Critique my build 1000-1200 gaming pc

Approximate Purchase Date: This Friday / Weekend / Asap

Budget Range: 1000-1200 US (Flexible)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Serious Gaming

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, OS, Monitor ( Just on my list because of a deal)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg

Country of Origin: US

Parts Preferences: Intel, Nvidia


SLI : Yes Definitely

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Here is a list I already started to piece together. I am willing to flex spend and go over budget to get better performance. For example SLI ( I plan to SLI two gtx470 Superclocked versions down the road). As far as motherboard, I am willing to go with something else /something better if possible. I was considering going i7-950 /asus sabertooth but don't know if i wanna put another 200 into it. Looking for thoughts and critiques!
