Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
HIS Hightech P Radeon HD 4870

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Now motherboard:

ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA
GIGABYTE GA-X38-DS4

Case
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

If you are going to overclock the Rampage Formula get faster DDDR2 RAM like 1066. The E8XXX can do well over 450FBS with air. The RAM might hold you back.

If you get the Rampage Formula change the thermal compounf on the northbridge and southbridge before you power it up . If you wait untill you run it, The stuff will be hard as a rock.
