New Build (Gaming Desktop)

Hello, I'm looking to build a Gaming Desktop (I have around a $1000 budget). I was referred here because Tom's Hardware is supposed to be the elite authority on builds and computers.

This is what I'm looking at so far:

Will all the components and everything work well together? Any tips or recomendations to build a better cheaper desktop?

Thank you for the help!

  1. Well 3GB is overkill unless your going to be displaying on multiple monitors. If theres a 2GB model of that GFX card thats pretty good too. and assuming you can setup drivers, You can buy barebone pc's for real cheap at tigerdirect.com just look at this one deal im getting for my pc. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3466047&CatId=31
  2. just tell the following

    budget
    overclocking?
    SLI/crossfire in the future
    parts not required
    location.
