ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I have a tentative list of parts, but I want to make sure I am getting most bang for my buck and didn't overlook any compatibility issues. I settled for the ATI 5770 because I am really only playing WoW right now, and will look into adding another in crossfire once I need the extra power. Here is what I have so far:
I debated getting the OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP but in the end I went for a more reliable one. A lot of people are haivng problems with that model. A quality power supply is the foundation of a healthy computer.
You may want to spend a few bucks more for a bigger screen, though some people prefer name brand over size.
If you are not going to overclock now I would wait until you want to OC before getting the cooler to save some bucks.
