Looks good, except I would get a cheaper video card now and wait for the new ATI series which are coming out soon. I would also get a different PSU.

Maybe this one. Should be instock 9/22.

Agreed on both counts.
Wait for the new cards to come out, there's no sense buying the older cards now when the new ones are so close, even if you do end up getting the 4890's there probably will be a price drop when they release the new cards.

And the PSU you chose is overkill for your system, you'd be fine even with 750W. And when I say fine, I mean not just-making-it fine, I mean you-can-relax-you've-got-tons-of-power-left fine.
The only reason you'd need a 1000W psu (or higher) is if you went with a 3 card setup.

Yea I should wait since there right around the corner. I forgot to mention that I plan on using my 58" 1080p plasma as a monitor. Games should run smooth on this correct? I play games like crysis, cod4 gta4 and fallout 3

Should run very smooth, especially with you going for the next gen graphic cards.
