Thumbs up another FNG!

Hello everyone

names Jay, and Im from Canada. I'm new to this and to computers, I'm interested in building a multi media/gaming PC on the lower side of a $1000ish. Im also interested in forward compatibility so i don't need to rebuild after a year or two. If i could get some advice on what to start with that would be great!

So far this is what i have come up with:
-asus z77 sabertooth mobo lga1155
-cooler max haf 912 case
-Intel i5 ivybridge
-corsair vengeance 8gb ram (2x4gb)
-corsair 750w modular power supply
-ASUS or MSI geforce 660 (probably SLI a second one in the future)
-seagate barracuda 1 tb hdd
-a cheap dvd /burner for now

Well that's all i for now if you guys could leave your comments and suggestions that would be great

Welcome to the forums Jay, your question is more likely to get a response in the appropriate area.
