CPU cooler - If you want to overclock with unlocked cores, then this is very much required...
CCTF 92MM - would fit your case...

Mobo
Gigabyte 770
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Or even this ASRock is a good option...

Video card -
D 5770 is a good option for that resolution and also it can be overclocked to get more performance...

PSU + DVD
OCZ 500W - 80+ certified and is modular too...can power even the HD 5870...

hehe your gonna need more then 600 dollars. I thought my first build would be a 5-600 dollar build...... 1200 dollars later just for the rig itself . i would say to you don't skimp on the MOTHERBOARD if your gonna skimp at all. at least a solid foundation for future improvements. once you build your own system, its easy to get the upgrade sickness. Good luck and enjoy .

then what would you recommend as a mobo like future proof and second thing is if its possible for anyone to find like single item build since this will probly be bought in like 1-2 months so i dont think combo offers last that long :S well ty in advance

^ There is only a $30 difference between single item build and the combo...So the total wont change much...
And as for the mobo, the Gigabyte that I have linked is a very good one and if you are a regular user, then I dont think you would need anything more...It can support even the 140W Phenom, which I think would be the max TDP for the AMD CPUs...
