800 - 1000$ Gaming Rig

Hi, guys. I've recently posted here and closed the thread, but I'm changing up my build a little bit, so I hope it's not a big deal that I'm opening another thread. I just want to make sure everything I've selected is fine and that there are not alternative parts that would be better. I'm using the computer for gaming with high settings. I plan on playing intense games, such as Crysis 2.

My Build so far:

LG DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model GH24LS50 LightScribe Support - OEM

COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

ASUS VH236H Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor

GIGABYTE GV-R695D5-2GD-B Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W Continuous Power ATX12V version 2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

Team 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TXD34096M1600HC9DC-D

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard combo. Save $15
(mobo+cpu combo)

Including OS and monitor, this comes to about $1100, which is fine. However, does anyone have any comments on the parts I've chosen? Or even better suggestions? If you do, please state the parts and why they're better. Thank you :)

*Also: I plan to possibly Crossfire in the future. I'm also thinking about overclocking
