Ok, this will be my first build and from what I have been reading here I'm not doing to bad. Here's what I have so far:

Intel i5-750 2.66GHz quad core
ASUS P7P55D Pro ATX Intel motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1333
Antec Earthwatts EA650 650Watt
WD Caviar Black 7200rpm 500GB SATA

All of this comes out to $603.95 shipped. From Newegg

As for the OS I have a guy who can get me Windows 7 Ultimate for $80. I have a CD drive from another PC to put in it, and I plan to go to my local Computer store for the case. Is there anything you would add to compliment this setup?

Just for now till I save up a little more money I plan to use the card from my current PC, its a Radeon HD 4650. I'm not a hardcore gamer but I like the option of having that ability.

Get a either a Seagate 7200.12 500GB or Samsung F3 500GB instead of the WD 500GB if they have it at the store.

+1 for the Seagate 7200.12

and you should be able to OC your CPU by a decent amount too.
Even more if your willing to spend a few extra bucks on a good Aftermarket CPU fan
