That is really broad. Do you want us to basically pick out all the parts for your computer, or have you already done some research? If you have and/or haven't looked into it, then post what you are thinking so that we can make suggestions on cheaper and better components.

A few things to start out with are:
CPU: AMD or Intel
^planning on overclocking?
GPU: ATI or nVidia?
PSU: check this link: http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103
Memory: How much
HDD: How much
Case: personal preference, but Antec makes good ones.

Put forth some effort and generally people on here will put forth just as much.

EDIT: I just re-read that last sentence and realized that I could have come off as rude. I'm not trying to be, but you just didn't post any of your ideas so I assumed that you haven't given it much thought. Sorry if I am wrong.
