Rate my $1000 Gaming PC Build

Hi,
I have put together what I think is the best possible hardware I could for about $1000, but I'd like to see what everyone else thinks of the system.
Everything is purchased with the exception of the Blu-Ray drive/DVD burner, which isn't even really necessary in my case because for now I'm just using
the one from my old system. I was fortunate enough for some good deals to come together all at the same time, othewise it would have been a lot more.
The cooler hasn't arrived yet, and once it does I plan to do some moderate overclocking, since this is my first time doing any.
All parts purchased were from Newegg.com.

    I missed that part of his post. I feel bad for the guy if that was supposed to be a gaming build with that budget. He got totally hosed.
