Default A new gaming rig, needs some suggestions

PLEASE when POST threads asking for input on system builds tell us...

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
Gaming and hooking up with my hdtv

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
around 1000 thats about 1300$

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.
Estonia and UK

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. Not really

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
not any parts
6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.
have looked at alot of builds
7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
end opf the month
9. What resolution do you use? 1920 x 1080 is the monitor i have picked out

So, i have looked around a bit more and have some of the items chosen.
CPU: INTEL CORE I5 2500K 190 261$ [...] BOX-103762
PSU: CHIEFTEC PSU 750W 85 117$ [...] 750C-59547
is this good enough to later run sli or cross? or shoudl i look for more W
HDD:SEAGATE ST31000524AS 1TB 32MB 7200rpm SATA3 50 69$ [...] TA3-108603
MEMORY: recomend some, around 50 69$
PCU cooler: Cooler Master HYPER 212 PLUS 26 36$
MOBO: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 150 206$ [...] REME4+GEN3
the problem i have iwth mobo's is that some of the gpus are 3 slot(asus ones) and might have alot of trubles if i'd like to run them in sli/cfire might anyone have any experience with that?
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 570 DirectCU II 258 295 406$ [...] ubcat=1010
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 OC WINDFORCE 3X 266 304 419$ [...] ubcat=1010
OR maybe insted a HD 6950 or 6970
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 6950 TOXIC 2048MB GDDR5 248 283 390$ (they used to be upgrade to 6970 but do not know if anymore?) [...] =GX-274-SP
Or maybe some other brand?
Or overall witch ones should i be looking at to first use 1 and later sli or cross
CASE: Zalman Z9 Plus PC tower 70 96$ [...] tower.html
Cooler Master Storm Scout 75 103 (leaning towards this) [...] case.html#
Monitor: ViewSonic 24" LCD VX2453 160 220$ [...] id/178483/
or shoudl i be spending more? on a monitor
Total around 1060 thats 1459$
plus a little for a keyboard(have a mouse for the start) and some other stuff that might need
so If You guys could look it over, see if im not making any mistakes anywhere? is the MOBO good enough to upgrade in the future like the new intel psu or a next gen gpu
