I'm trying to keep this under $1000.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
(HD 4890 and Vista 64bit Home Premium) $324.98

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
(AMD Phenom X4 955 3.2GHz and ASUS M4A79T Motherboard) $319.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
(750W Power Supply and Antec Case) $209.94

And I already have - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (4MB RAM) - so it's not changing, although I could add more memory if necessary.

I also have a 1440x900 HD monitor that I'm not changing now, but I probably will within the next 6 months.

I've changed this list many, many times over the last few days, and I mostly need to know if I'm fogetting anything I need, but suggestions on parts or better deals are appriciated.

The CPU and motherboard you picked are both AM3 parts which means they require DDR3 RAM. Your old DDR2 RAM will not work with the components chosen for this build. I would recommend this RAM:

OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P16004GK - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $75.99
