Just seeing if this build is good and works with each other. i do plan on overclocking the CPU at some point. I will be playing starcraft 2, CSS, and Battlefield 3 when it comes out.

Main questions, am i missing anything? is my PSU going to work? is there a better motherboard out there for around the same price? (answered, edited)

CASE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (edited from same thing for $90)

Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (edited from 560ti $250) (maybe a better 1 out there?)

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (combo'd with case saved $40 and cheaper than 650w this way.

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (edited from 2x4gb 1866 $129)

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (edited better feedback, sli, only a couple 30 more dollars. )

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

total price is 1019 bucks. any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: i replaced the ram which i could pick up another pair of those 2x2gb's in a couple weeks. how much difference is the 1600mhz vs 1866mhz? im sure its not noticable.

edit2: buying cpu video card combo saving $18, and getting heatsink and HDD on amazon and saving 10$ currently $1033. which is fine with me unless you guys see something else :D  thank so much

Alternately, you could use the extra money to buy a cooler master hyper 212 plus to overclock your CPU for additional performance

That board does not support SLI. The newegg site is wrong on that and it's screwed up a lot of peeps up for the fact they purchased that board thinking they could run dual Nvidia cards in SLI ...newegg needs to get it together.

Down below is two links in regards to that MSI board you have linked in your build.

http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?action=printpage;topic=147050.0

The two cheapest P67 boards that run SLI are the MSI G-53 and the Asrock extreme4.
