Standard Gaming PC - Help on Build

I'm working on the perfect gaming PC for me, I want to play MW2, Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3 (when they come out Darkspore, Starcraft 2, and World of Warcraft hopefully all maxed on a 24" monitor smoothly. I don't know if that's asking for a lot with this build, but I'm trying to keep it as cheap as possible. It wouold've came to around $1,200, but I put the 24" monitor, Win7 HP, and a keyboard, mouse, and headset in as well. PLEASE give me any advice if I need to change anything or add anything. I added a 120mm Standard cooling an and kept everything else at the default. (Standard liquid cooling). Thanks in advance everyone =)

  1. Looks ok but i would try to save some money somewhere to get the GTX 560, Its a great card.
  2. Same build with windows 7 included is 1150 at custompcandrepairs.com, at least it was a little bit ago, email them and ask might get a deal.
  3. There standard liquid cooling is a joke... Im assuming this is cyberpower or ibuypower. A good air cooler like a Mugen or Hyper212+ will be better.
