Im looking to build an Intel I7 system. but am really out of the loop on current hardware. I have been deployed to Iraq for the past year and am now looking to start ordering parts. Im looking to spend about 1500 dollars on it. Any help would be appriciated on parts to buy due to my time I have to research parts is very limited right now.

This build is set up to add another 4890 later on for Crossfire. I didn't include speakers, keyboard and mouse for the fact you would probably have a better idea of what you want in regards to those items.
