Multi-media/gaming build

hey guys, im new to the scene and have just desided to make the jump to building my own PC. I have a budget of around £800. Id like the machine to be able to play the latest games and also be able to deal with my 3d animation work. I've been doing some reasearch and the amout of chose out there has realy started to confuse me. This is why i thought it best to ask people that know what there doing. The only part that i know i want is a HD5850. the rest i'll leave in your hands.

Parts needed

Case
PSU
CPU
Motherboard
GPU - HD 5850
4Gb ddr3
hard drive
dvd drive

I already have and 22" monitor, keyboard + mouse and windows 7. Any help and ideas you guys have would be very helpfull.

thanks.
