Cables: 1 HDMI for HDTV connection and 1 SATA cable for the HDD
I was hoping to make a mid-range gaming system with an affordable price that I can overclock/upgrade later if need be. Am I missing any parts or overlooking anything that isn't compatible? Am I getting a good value for the price with these parts? Thanks in advance for your advice.

My 600$ build, but changing the i3 2100 to an i5 2400. That'd add $70, bringing you to 670$, with the 30-50$ remaining. Change that 6850 to a 560 Ti. You should be good to go. Here is something to start you off.
As Msi announced this motherboard will support the latest 8-core Bulldozers with a Bios Update. It has everything a modern system needs from Sata III and USB III to a Second Pci-E slot that i won't use because of it's bandwith (4x).
