Default First Build, Hey Hardware Canucks :)

My first time on any computer enthusiast forums, so what up? I finally have the funds to build a nice rig that I can overclock, game at 1920x1200/1920x1080 and generally have some fun with. Let me know what you think. I plan on overclocking this i7 920 with air. Anything included in the build I would like to be from this distribution website because of the 20 month payment finance with no interest my work is now offering me only through this company. I'd give the website but you need a company login and I can't give it out unfortunately. The first build is if I use as many components as I can from the distribution center and if the availability from the distribution website permits. The second is if I have no availability on the original build for some components. I love the second build but you can see the costs associated with that situation. The Quattro 1000 is going to stay since the website has them in stock and none of the 1000HX. I will budget for the second 4890 and the ssd as it's already set in my mind and I am still under budget. Cheers.
