Default Another "I'm building a PC and need advice from experts!" thread D:

So I'm looking to build my first PC and my eyes are sore from researching for that last few hours. I'd like to get a review of my choices so far from the experts out there...

I play FFXI and want to get into PC gaming more heavily but I can't affor more than $1200 at this time...

Including shipping, I've put together this PC for about $1075 and I'm thinking of ordering it all in the next few days.

I already have a keyboard, speakers, monitor and mouse.

Does anything from this setup look overkill or insufficient? Am I missing any important components? Thanks in advance for your advice!
