FoolyCooly has given you a very nice build. The motherboard he specified is compatible with the new Gulftown six-core processor from Intel that will be introduced next week at the Consumer Electronics Show. If you want to future proof your build you should consider getting this CPU. The list price will be $999.
CPU - Intel i7-920 should be considered a starting point. While you will hear lots of advice that anything more expensive is a waste of money, because the 920 can be OC'd to 975 levels the fact is that the more expensive processors do OC higher than the 920 OC's. So simply put, while considering the 920 as a starting point, consider what benefits higher priced processors offer and decide for yaself whether the %% investment is worth it to you.
