^ I assume you will be using the PC mainly for gaming...
Based on my assumptions I would suggest these changes...
1. PSU - Change it to a quality 650W from Antec/ Corsair/ Silverstone/ Seasonic/ PCP&S
2. CASE - Antec 200/ 300
3. CPU - i5 750 - For gaming, I doubt you would notice much difference between the 750 and the 860...
4. With the money saved on the CPU, get a Crossfire supporting mobo like Gigabyte UD4P
5. Graphics - HD 5850...and with a Quality 650W and that mobo, you can later on add 1 more HD 5850 in xfire...
