First PC Build (Gaming)

Hello everyone,
I am trying to build a gaming rig as close to 900-1000 as possible. (Without monitor)
Essentially, the goal is for the PC to be able to run MMOs at ultra settings and still get reasonable fps.

Case (59.99) -

CPU (229.99) -

RAM (44.99) -

Video Card (239.99) -

Hard Drive (159.99) -

Mother Board (124.99) -

Operating System (100.00) - Windows 7 64 bit

Power Supply (69.99) -

Heatsink (25.99) -

My main concern is the Video Card, perhaps you all would know of something better or perhaps as good for less. Also that the Power Supply may not have the juice necessary to handle this.

I will not be overclocking anytime soon.

There are two i5's available on the link above, one being $225 and one below it at $210. Just wondering if there's a difference between the two.

Oh okay, the difference is that the $225 is the version wanted if you want to overclock the other you cant

Alright, thank you for the clarification. Is there any other expenses I should be ready to factor into this purchase as well? I'm new to the techy thing, but I've seen some mentioning of SSD, and things to hold components in place/enclosures, etc.

if your gonna get an SSD get an internal one the case should provide enough places to hold all items securely. If you want a SSD put your OS on it and your most used games/apps
