Is it better to order the whole thing from one website, or is it also good to order from several?

Here's one I put together from newegg, thoughts?

Case

Mobo

CPU

GPU

PSU

HDD

Windows 7

Mobo comes with a free 2x4gig gskill ram and I already have a optical drive

Edit: I know the mobo can't do crossfire/sli later, but I'm not too worried about it, this build was the best I could do with the budget and the free ram really helps out.

Edit : Saw the HiS IceQ 7870 ghz and am getting that instead because it's cheaper and apparently has cooler temps.

Final Edit : Changed the case to a HAF 922 for 5 dollars cheaper. Changed the PSU to corsair 750w bronze for 5 dollars more. Used windows 7 promo code. and ordered it.

Looks ok to me.
The only part I would strongly object to is the PSU, as the Cooler Master GX series is not that good, you can certainly get better PSUs for the money. Also you don't need as much as 650W, unless you're going to Crossfire/SLI in the future.

Rosewill Capstone-450 ($60 @ Amazon)

Or
Rosewill Hive-550 ($66 @ Amazon)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-hive550

If you are going to CF/SLI then this is $10 more expensive before rebate and is much better:
XFX ProSeries 650W Core Edition ($75 @ NCIX)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650snlb9

I think this is a better motherboard:
Asus M5A97 R2.0 ($90 @ Amazon)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a97r20
Functionally, very similar to the Asus M4A87TD/USB3, but is cheaper, has an internal USB 3.0 connector, so you could buy a case that has two USB 3.0 ports on the front panel and use them easily.
The only thing is missing compared to the M4A87TD/USB3 is an IDE port, so if you need that, then you might as well stick with it.

If you are going to CF/SLI in the future then it is preferable to get a motherboard with either an x8, x8 split or an x16, x16 split, rather than an x16, x4 split, like on the two above.

Ok, so I know you can already build a pretty good gaming PC for $700 already, but with black Friday, you could do a lot better right?

I already have : monitor and peripherals, 700gig HDD (but it's basically gone, so I need another ), and 3x2gig ram sticks ( still need to get more because these are absolute shit ).

Question : I have Windows 7 installed on this hard drive, I don't have a key or a disc ( may have a recovery disk ) and it came pre installed on this comp ( bought it as a whole :/ ). Will I still be able to use this windows if I use another motherboard or will I have to buy a new copy?

Games I play : WoW, LoL, SC2, Skyrim, BF3 and whatever else comes out.

So, basically, I'd like to take advantage of the black friday deals and build a gaming rig that can run most games ( it's probably not going to get ultra right? ) at high with decent fps ( will it be able to do that also? ). I really appreciate any help and if you read all of this. Thank you so much.



Edit : Tried making one but it's a little over. I could downgrade to a 660 ti easily though.

Edit 2 : It seems I have to buy a windows 7 copy, so I tried to make this one, and it's basically in the price range.
