My System Specs

Default <$1000 Build Advice

Here is my build that i am putting together primarily to play Diablo 3. It will also be used for watching and streaming hd video to other media devices. I will be adding a secondary regular HDD once the prices start coming down again. My budget is $1000 or less (not including monitor, speakers, keyboard & mouse). I might look into doing some OCing and Crossfiring in the future as well so I got a 750W power supply for future-proofing.

Motherboard: ASRock Z68 EXTREME3 GEN3 ATX LGA1155 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E SATA3 USB3.0 SLI CrossFireX Motherboard $139.79
Power Supply: Corsair Professional HX750W 750W ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan $122.49
CPU: Intel Core i5 2550K Quad Core Unlocked Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Sandy Bridge 6MB No Onboard Graphics $173.60
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850 Windforce 820MHZ 1GB 4.2GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI Display Port PCI-E Video Card $119.99
Memory: HyperX Genesis 8GB DDR3-1600MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 4GB) w/ Intel XMP $47.49
SSD: Crucial M4 SSD Micron C400 128GB 2.5IN Solid State Disk Flash Drive SATA3 6Gbps* $110.36

Case: Antec Eleven Hundred Performance Gaming Case XL-ATX 3X5.25 2X2.5 6X3.5IN 2XUSB3 INT No PSU $84.84
Cooling: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink AM2 AM3 LGA1366 LGA1155 LGA1156 120MM* $20.31
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM $81.37

Total (Before Tax): $961.67

I think I got a lot of good deals on the components so I was able to save quite a bit. Any feedback or suggestions are welcome!
