Hello, my old PC is dying on me, and after about $200 dollars down the hole it is pretty obvious that this old computer is not salvageable anymore. So I figure might as well get a new PC.
BUDGET: $0 to $800 ($200 dollars reserved for new monitor)
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Next week or two
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming/multimedia, work
SPECIAL PREFERENCE: Trying to build it as silent as possible. (for watching movies and leaving it on during night in my bedroom).
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, speakers, harddrive, OS
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:Canadacomputers.com, NCIX.com, directcanada.com
OVERCLOCKING: Probably limited to graphic card only.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: SLI preferred if possible, but not too important. I have a 9800GT and would like to salvage it if possible, as it will cost me $20 dollars to return it.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: Currently looking into 1600x1000 monitor or possibly a 1920 x1080 capable monitor.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Location is Ottawa Canada, so unfortunately can't use American stores.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know the basics but is a complete newbie on determining hardware performance/cost ratios, component bottlenecks, temperature and noise, etc. I have already made couple of hardware buying mistakes when I tried to revive my old dying PC, so want to get this new rig just right.

Thanks for all your help. It has been very helpful in choosing the setup. I think I will probably base my PC on the last one you posted. So trying to finalize couple of things.
