The system is to be used for gaming and streaming. The gaming is Eve Online on four accounts. I run two accounts with PvP characters in large scale combat situations, which can use up to 2GB RAM. The other two accounts use barely a GB each at most. I'm looking to get 3+ years out of it before I consider upgrading again. I will probably overclock to 4.0GHz in the future. I already own two 21" LED monitors. I'm pretty much right at my build budget of $850.

Just want to know if there are any mistakes as far as product choices, or something I might have missed.

I would suggest to get a Seagate Barracuda HDD instead of the WD one.
