Buying a new PC

I'm thinking about buying a new PC with this build:

Motherboard: Gigabyte B75M-D3H (Two PCIe x16 slots with respectively 16x & 4x speeds)
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3550, 3.30 kHz/3.70kHz
RAM: Kingston HyperX 4 GB DDR3-1600 RAM
Graphics: I'm going to crossfire with two ATI Radeon HD 5750 cards.

The computer will be used mainly for gaming, so i figured an i5 core and 4 gb ram should do the trick.
My budget is around $900 max and I'm from Denmark where it will be assembled as well.

I'm not going to overclock the PC.

I'm posting this for some advice or comments on the build, before i buy it.

Cheers (:

Make sure you get a quality power supply. A bad PSU is hard to debug.

Google 'microstutter'. I would not xfire 2x $75 HD 5750. Instead consider an HD6850 also at $150

"used mainly for gaming" the balance of graphics vs CPU is off. A $900 system should have $200-$300 in video. A $700 i3 based system with a $300 video card will outgame your $900 system pretty badly.
