what gpu do u have? since it says in ur form that u only need cpu, mobo, ram, hsf and psu
if u dont have a good gpu on hand, go with banthracis' build
if u do have something like a 5870 or 5970 already then i would suggest
Alright, take beerhelmets build, and you can switch the CPU to a AMD Phenom II X4 955, and the motherboard to a Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4. That will save you about $200 right there, and change the ram to a G.Skill Ripjaws Series (2 x 2GB) Cas 7 1600. That'll save you $80, making it around $800.
If this is a gaming PC, it really won't make in games whether you have a Phenom II X4 955 or a Intel 930. If it does, it'll be extremely minor. And you'll have a SSD and a Hyper 212+ for overclocking if you feel like it.
