im goin with something like this... although i didnt get much feedback so something may be able to be improved upon... but it should be a good starting point

with rebates was 540.... so you could add a different case/psu if you wanted (Personal preference ?) and get a better graphics card( as that one isnt amazing) look at the ati 5770 5850 ?? 4770 ? should put u at about 6-700

woot i was right :)  -> check out the psu / case combos for the ocz psus i got the one with the haf922 just go to ocz brand and hit the "80+ certified" and the good ones will come up then check out all the combos ... also there was a combo deal with the spinpoint f3 and an ocz power supply i think with like -20 discount
