Talking New Gaming Rig! Opinions Wanted! (UPDATED)

Hello forum members, I wanted to post the spec's of a new gaming PC I will be buying this weekend but before I go through with it I would really like to hear from you if my build is good or needs work.

I do not plan to overclock anytime soon, but I do plan to Crossfire two 4850's down the road and when I do I will prob look at overclocking the CPU to aroudn 3.6 on air. I also want to keep it under $850 bucks before tax and right now everything comes to $833.50

So without delay please drop a line with your opinion.
