You may want to bear in mind that the Intel SSD's are presently going into their second generation. At the moment, would-be buyers are presently forced to choose between the first generation, which Intel claims won't be receiving updated firmware to work properly in Windows 7, and the second generation, which has a weird (if rare) data-corruption issue that hasn't been patched yet.

And even if it works into your budget, a pair of 4890's could be considered a little overkill for gaming at 19x12. You could probably pocket an extra hundred or so if you dropped down to a pair of 4870's. Just a thought.
