Default Building a gaming machine

I have a thread in the general building forum and muffin man has been a huge help but I wanted to pick the brains of some other forum regulars to see if my build is good or if there can be improvements made.

Here is what I have so far....

Optical drive - Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD/CD Rewritable Drive - CD / DVD Burners
HD - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Graphics - SAPPHIRE 100282SR Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Cooler - XIGMATEK Intel Core i7 compatible Dark Knight-S1283V 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Case and PSU - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Ram and MOBO - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems

The total before rebates is 992.87. I'm hoping to lower the price just a bit without sacrificing too much. The video card absolutely has to stay. Everything else is debatable. What do you guys think?
