i think you need a better monitor. with a 5850 it is overkill on a 1440x900. get something like a 1920x1200 or 1900x1080

Mohamads is right....

But I am going to attempt this.... I will build on a 1300$ budget....
(what operating system do you have?
For a 1300 budget I recommend the 930....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ~284.99
Do you have the graphics card? cause I don't see a price so I can't factor it in, I am too lazy to google it.
Mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ~189.99 - Nothing new, but it is solid.... and has 3 PCI-e slots, I don't recommend more then two GPU's but it lets you have something else.
RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ~ 119.99 - Solid ram, and it is triple channel so, you can have 12 gigs or higher... I recommend buying the same ram as you bought before... But you will know if youu need more then 6, an average person, even a hard core gamer doesn't top 6 gigs....
Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ~39.99 - I'm not to good on cases, so I chose the one I have, it is pretty good... There are other colours so just search coolermaster elite 310 case.. and the rest should come up... (the colours are in the front and ring around it)...
I attached another 250 to the price for the GPU, but it is 634 without the GP, and 884.96 for the total price... If you don't have Windows 7 or Vista 64 bit I advise buying it... I also, since I came UNDER BUDGET!!!! first time =D I found a monitor...

I went a little overboard for your needs, but I think it looks smexy.... =p and I wish I had it... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ~ 369.99, bringing it to 1004.95... Good luck with the build!!!
If you didn't notice I left out the CPU cooling, I stink at those... I wouldn't take anything I say about them good, I advise buying the whole thing and use the default, and ask Tom's cooling section... I would want you to get Air, if I had to choose... Especially for a unexperienced person (no offense)...

On your 6-8 month purchase date, I bet the prices will drop, and Intel may coem out with a new line of i7 so you may be able to get higher then a 930... I know ATI WILL drop, the 6000 series is coming out next month.... I'd ask again within a month or so of the purchase.
