Default Spring Build

Looking to create a new build for gaming, nothing extreme though I would like it to be able to run Generals 2 when it comes out in 2013; and also having a build that wont be obsolete so quickly. Trying to keep the build under $1200.00 range, this is what I have come up with so far:

Processor: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W $259.99

Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ $219.99

Memory: G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 $139.99

Video Card: DIAMOND A5970PE52G Radeon HD 5970 2GB 512 (256 x 2)-bit GDDR5 $329.99

Power Supply: Antec CP-1000 1000W Continuous ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready $149.99

Case: Antec Twelve Hundred V3 $179.99

Open to suggestions, alternate builds & advice.
