the 860 will be much cheaper for overclocking

i would recommend the zalman case, bottm mounted psu

ull be better off getting a western digital caviar black 1tb

get the corsair 750watt psu, its cheap nd it works,

if you plan to oc, ull need a cooler, id get the cooler master v8

The i7 860 is 95% of the performance at about half the price. For pure gaming an i5 would be about as fast anyway.

Why those cases? Look at the coolermaster HAF 922, its a full tower sized case at a mid tower price.

You picked a green drive - low power/low performance. Get a Samsung F3 performance drive or a caviar black 640.

The Xigmatek S1283 Rifle cooler (needs optional bracket) and the Coolermaster Hyper 212 are both 120mm top performing coolers at an inexpensive price.

For memory you want a 2x2GB kit (4GB total) of DDR3-1333 CAS7 low voltage (1.5-1.65V) RAM like this OCZ gold

Take a look at HAF 932 and Antec 1200 for full tower cases, both are pretty much the same price/performance

And does that budget include the 5870 you already have? If not I would go after a 920 based system
