New PC Build Please Assist

Good Morning All,

First and foremost this is going to be my first custom build. I don't have much experience at all with overclocking either. I am looking to build a new PC for as close to $1000 as possible. I primarily use my system for PC gaming, specifically "Star Wars The Old Republic." I would like the pc/motherboard to have the option to upgrade later on down the road when the next big MMORPG comes along. Also, I am going with and AMD processor. With that said, this is what I have so far. Any and all suggestions are apreciated.

  1. Partial to AMD builds. I thought there are issues with not using all available 240 pin memory slots, specifically timing. The board is definitely very nice.
