Default Building 1st Gaming PC, Need Opinions

I am building a gaming machine to play mostly mmorpg's and rts. Below is a list I have put together on my build. I was just wanting to get some different eyes to check this build to make sure I haven't missed something and to make sure everything will work together. The one item I'm not sure about is the memory. The motherboard 's specs say DDR3 1600(O.C)/1333. Does that mean I can only have 1333 memory? Thanks for any input!!

Intel Core i7 I7-920
ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution
ASUS Radeon 5850
CORSAIR TX Series 950W Power Supply
2 x Kingston SSDNow V-Series SNV125-S2BD/64GB
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I would drop one SSD and buy the WD 1TB Black if I were you. The rest sounds good to me.


ASUS P5P77D :: INTEL i5 750@3.6 GHz :: Asus HD4890 :: 4GB Gskill Ripjaw 1600MHz CL7 :: WD Black 1TB :: SSD OCZ Vertex2 60GB :: Corsair 750TX :: LG L204WT :: Windows 7 x64

<<<<<<<<<< If you think I've been helpful in anyway rep me :p

I agree, drop one SSD for a data HDD. And you don't need the 950W for that build. You could get the 750 or 850W PSU.
