Building another new machine because of the upcoming Black Friday aligning with some employee discounts. Most of my gaming includes MMOs, particularly WoW and GW2. Gaming will be done at 1920x1080. The GPU is the one thing I'm considering. I wanted to keep it close to $1000 after rebates and I need a new monitor. Anyone find some sweet deals on the negotiable parts?

I will be overclocking the CPU and most likely the GPU depending on temps. The HDD is the another I'm hoping to find something better for my money. Pretty sure this will be my final setup but perhaps someone has found something nice out there.
