My System Specs

Default Opinions On My First Budget Gaming Build

Just thought I'd get some opinions on what I'm looking at for my first DIY budget build.

Intel Core i5 2500k 3.3GHZ
Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboard
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750M Modular Power Supply
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO Heatsink Fan
MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Hawk 1GB 950MHZ Video Card (Hope to SLI in future)
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte PC3-12800 2x4GB DDR3-1600 1.5V Memory
REVERTED: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6Gbps 3.5IN Internal Hard Drive - OEM
CHANGED: Samsung SH-S243D/BEBE 24X Black DVD Writer SATA OEM
Zalman Z9 Plus ATX Mid-Tower Case

Total Price with Price Matching (no sale prices): CHANGED: $986.68 (down from $1127.10, range $1000-1200)

This build will primarily be used for gaming and multimedia. I also hope to do some research and try OC'ing this system.

I hope to add an SSD drive in the future, as well as SLI the 560 Ti Hawk. Maybe more fans for cooling later on, too.

I hope to use my Creative Soundblaster Fatality sound card in place of the onboard audio, and hoping to upgrade my monitor to a 24" from 19".

Any thoughts and opinions are most welcome and greatly appreciated!
