My budget is 1000 dollars for computer, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. How did I do with choosing the best parts. I want to be able to play games like BF3, skyrim, wow, and diablo 3 on ultra settings. Will the 7850 be enough for me?

The computer itself is 825. The monitor/keyboard/mouse pushes the final price to 1000 dollars. I am willing to change anything on my list. Please provide any suggestions/improvements to lower cost/ improve my system. Also be sure to check if all my parts are compatible and that I have covered all the things I need to build a gaming rig. Thank you.

    Far as video cards keep in mind that several sites are indicating that AMD is going to drop the price of the HD7970, 7950 and 7870 by $50 on Monday. It should not take too long for these price cuts to show up online. This may be an opportunity to upgrade.
