Hello, this is my first build and I would like your opinions of it. I'll be using this computer for gaming. I'm not looking to run any specific game really. I plan to use this build for quite a few years to come so I'm looking for good quality parts that will last.
p.s I heard I should drop the liquid cooling but I want something thats quiet but still keeps my cpu cool so if someone's got a better alternative I'm all ears.
Plan to purchase within 2 days(by May 13)
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers.
Monitor resolution is 1024x768 but I plan to upgrade to a better monitor later.
---Build parts--- Case: NZXT Tempest 210 Mid-Tower Gaming Case
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB 16X PCIe Video Card (Major Brand Powered by AMD)
Power Supply: 850 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit Edition) --- OverClocking: No (Don't Have any knowledge in this area)
Crossfire: No (Don't Have any knowledge in this area)
Cost: $1000 (after 5% off coupon) I'm willing to go up a little in price maybe 50 bucks if needed.
Any and all help will be appreciated. If any more information is needed please ask.

It looks great I have the i5 2500k that should last 8-10 years before you need to upgrade 3.3 ghz is to die for and you can overclock and add 2-3 years to how long it will last for gaming I would get hyperx ram though.

I would also change the RAM to 4gb x 2 config.
I'm no fan of liquid cooling. but if i did, i would get a good one, not the crappy one that comes free. Corsair H60 or better... push-pull config.
