With your previous help I have selected the following:

ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer
Intel Core i7-920 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W
SAPPHIRE 100281SR Radeon HD 5870 1GB
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 6GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2M080G2XXX 80gb SATA II (SSD)
HP Multiformat DVD Writer
BYTECC Floppy Drive BT-145
LIAN LI PC-P80 ATX Full Tower Case

Eventually I will add more hard drives and a second OS and blue ray burner, but this is what I can afford for now.

Thanks again for all your much needed help.

You want to get a regular HDD right away. SSDs are not good as data drives, and you really only want to put the OS and apps on it. I recommend the Samsung Spinpoint F3. It's the best drive out right now, and fairly cheap.

That motherboard is really expensive, and definitely overkill. I recommend the Asus P6X58D Premium at $90 less.
