First build, need advice!

This is what I'm at after researching and then receiving tips from a couple of members. Hows it looking? I want something that will play games well now and still be smooth at lower settings in a couple of years(generally I get a new system every 3 years). This will be overclocked.

#1. we can't view your secure cart
#2. list your budget so we know where/how to play with your choices
#3. don't ask us and then tell us you already ordered it, it'll just make you feel bad if someone points out something "important"

Ok, let's try that now.

And I want to keep it in the 1k range.

My apologies, that was in the cart but not on the wish list. Fixed.

So everyone is willing to repeatedly point out the obvious but nobody has any pointers? w/e I'll just order it and build it.

I just got done shopping for my build go check the combo deals for all parts you may find some overlap. Also I have read around and AM3 seems to be having some trouble with stability I didn't get one due to it. But I just built a complete rig for 1200$ post is up high on build logs might want to take a look at it if you decide to for go the AM3. Also troll the deals section of the forum found several good deals there and Promo codes even if it's seven dollars it took you what to find it 2 min seems worth it to me. That's all the advice I have maybe and Open box or re certified GPU. cheers
