Multi-use system ($1500) Needs Check

Hi Everyone

Just seeing if you can look over my comp idea and give me some insight on any changes you would make. I was aiming for $1500, but did increase my budget to around $2000. I play the odd game, mainly Starcraft, Guildwars, etc. I stream Halo from my Xbox to my pc often as well. I'm a regular internet user, and may or may not decide on OCing but I would like the option for the future. Any critiques to this system please let me know..... :)

I can build this system for right around $1500 shipped to me.

BTW: I live in Canada, have all the peripherals, and will be building in the next couple weeks.

  2. If I may ask, why did you suggest the Gigabyte Mobo over the Asus one? Is there anything in particular I should know about either?

    That Asus board has a lot of features that most peeps will never use.
