After that you're looking at a GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R ($200), I7 930 ($300), hyper 212+ and Arctic Silver 5 grease ($50), two GTX480's in SLI - $920 for both), 6gb ddr3 kit ($120), 1000watt power supply ($110), HAF932 ($100), 500gb samsung spinpoint ($50), 150gb velociraptor 10k rpm ($140)

I like the cpu + mobo but I would go with a 1TB spinpoint and an SSD (intel X25-M 80GB or OCZ Vertex 2) over the 500GB and 150GB raptor, much better performance with the SSD. Also I would stay away from the 2x GTX 480's unless its going to be water cooled. Also, if the OP lives near a microcenter you can get the i7 930 for 200

Thanks for the replies, but I was actually looking into the waterblocked evga 480s. Do you think you could tell me what I would need for a watercooling loop for two of those?

EDIT: Oh jeez, nevermind, that would be way over budget.
