Cant help you yet, the market is going to go through a few significant shifts between now and october like intel's i5's and AMD's DX11 cards. Any prices found now for components aside from the case and power supply wont mean a thing in a month or two, and by october they will all be different. Come back about 2 weeks before you are ready to buy and we will set you up with a good setup. But stick around in the meantime you will learn alot.

Parts not required = none meaning no mouse/keyboard/monitor/speakers?

if so, alot of the really good products batuchka threw together wont flow together for $1k.

I'd drop the 4870x2 for a 4890.
