$900 Budget ~ Gaming PC mostly for SC2

Hey hey. Looking to upgrade my current set up for college and playing on the school team. I really dont want to spend more than $900 on it but I can extend it a bit. I probably wont OC and if I do ill pick up a heat sink later on. The parts I have picked out right now are

Disc Drive
Asus ASUS Black 24X DVD
Rosewill CHALLENGER black gaming
Samsung Spinpoint F3
SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W
CORSAIR Vengeance 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
Plus Windows 7 OEM

Which comes to around $880
If I could I would like to maybe cut it down a bit. Would also like some feedback on how well the system will run.
Thanks :)

  1. Why not get a Z68 Motherboard?(nevermind, you probably won't use the different features on this chipset anyway)

    This seems like a better deal to me.

    A GTX460 1GB: $119.99 after mail-in rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500202

    I am not too sure about that power supply. Checked a few reviews that didn't rate it too highly too.
  2. You'll need to make another choice on your RAM, you have a dual channel setup (Core i5), but chose triple-channel ram (3x2Gb)

    Choose either 2x2Gb or 2x4G instead
  3. Check this $750 build.

    That includes the OS for $99, so you can probably drop that if you don't need it and upgrade the i3 2100 to a i5 2500k, which would also mean you would need to upgrade the mobo to a P67, like the one you selected.

    Still, should fit well within your budget.
