Default $1000 Build - First time Help

Hello there.

I've done a bunch of research and just need some input before I press the purchase button on NCIX. Please let me know if there are any changes you would make, I don't want to spend anymore money but a bit less wouldn't hurt.

1. I will be using my computer for light gaming, watching movies and internet

2. Budget is $800-$1000 not including monitor

3. Canada (Vancouver area) I will pick up from NCIX

4. Prefering AMD as I think AM3 board is more future proof and have liked AMD in the past

7. I probably won't be doing any overclocking but may in the future

8. I plan to have NCIX build it for me as it only costs $40 and it's guaranteed that way

9. What resolution do you use? 1920X1080
