Might want to follow the guidelines. We can give you a lot more help if we know more (budget, usage, etc.). Really, I can't do anything without the usage.

A better gaming build:

CPU: i5-750 $200
Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E Pro $190
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115
GPU: HD 5870 $420
HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $55
PSU: Corsair 750W 80+ $100 after rebate
Case: HAF 922 $90 after rebate
Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $23
HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus $35

Total: $1,228

A better non-gaming build:

CPU: i7-930 $295
Mobo: Asus P6X58D Premium $310
RAM: G.Skill Pi Series 3x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $180
GPU: HD 5850 $315
HDD: Seagate 7200.12 1 TB $90
PSU: Corsair 750W 80+ $100 after rebate
Case: HAF 922 $90 after rebate
Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $23
HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus $35

Total: $1,433

No idea if that's in budget or not...

Thanks for those suggestions eh my budget would be roughly $1200 and it would be for gaming. I live in ireland though so it can be hard to get parts cheap....

Mnms67 - Your original build isn't compatible. Your motherboard is LGA 1156 while your CPU is LGA 1366. Like MadAdmiral said, please edit your post to include the information in the "How to ask for new build advice" sticky and we'll be able to help.

Ok then. Definitely not the i7 then. Here's a build to price out over there:

CPU/Mobo: X4 955 and Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 $265 after rebate
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115
GPU: HD 5870 $420
HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $55
PSU: Corsair 750W 80+ $100 after rebate
Case: HAF 922 $90 after rebate
Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $23
HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus $35

Total: $1,103. If you've still got budget left, up the HDD to the 1 TB model.

Didn't even notice the P55 board. Shows how close I looked at it...
