Just need a last minute opinion on whether this is a decent set up or not.
How it could improve or be down-graded. My cash limit is about one grand not looking to go over that mark. Some choices were based on long term goals making sure it's able to be upgraded in the future. Anyways, opinions are well appreciated before I drop the cash on it. Thank you.

At $1,000 I'd be doing a Sandy Bridge Build.
