Sorry, forgot to mention that i will use the crossfire in the future, and i will probably use the HAF 922 instead of the 932. I will probably also overclock, it would be my first time though.

I think, so far, i am going to get:
Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cooler Master HAF 922 Mid Tower case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
XFX Radeon HD 5850 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thats all iv got so far, i still need to find a mobo, 4gb of RAM, a CPU cooler, 700W-800W PSU, 320-500GB harddrive, and a DVD drive

I would use these combo deals:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... $369.98 (i7 860 + HAF 922 combo)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... $244.98 (4GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 CAS 7 RAM + Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P combo)

Here's some suggestions for the other components you still need help with:

Antec TruePower New TP-750 Blue 750W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply - Retail $104.99

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $54.99

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-GP 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler - Retail $29.99

SAMSUNG SH-S223B 22X SATA DVD Burner Black Drive Bulk $29.99

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM $109.99

Of course all of this may change by the end of December. You should just come back a couple weeks before your planned build and ask for advice then. Computer hardware changes fast, so planning a build two months in advance isn't a good idea.

Edit: jbakerlent posted nearly EXACTLY the same thing while I was typing this up. :)
