Unless you tell us how much you want to spend it really is an open-ended question. What games do you play? What resolution do you run at? How long do you want to keep this system for?

All these things will affect the decisions.

And the 8800GTX may be a little long in the tooth now for certain games.

Personally I'm doing a cheap build based around:

Athlon II X3 425
Asus M4A785TD-M Evo
Patriot Sector 5 Viper II 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
Gainward GTS250 Green Edition 1024MB

with case, PSU and bits it's about £420 but it's only really playing WoW @1080p on my 50" plasma - very specific build.

It's a good place for reference if you're looking at a cheap build.
