CPU - Get the i7 from Microcenter in-store pick-up...

Mobo - That EVGA is a good one, but check this board too...
ASUS Sabertooth X58 - This comes with 5 Years warranty, also has very good features...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM - I would suggest 6GB for a X58 setup

Graphic card - I would suggest you not to get the GTX 480s...There are newer cards which will be launched by both ATI and Nvidia by this year-end, so get those...

PSU - If going with Nvidia cards, stick with atleast 700W+ PSU - Preferably from Corsair/ XFX/ PCP&S/ Silverstone/ Seasonic/ CM Real Power or Silent PRO/ Antec TP series...

SSD - If the budget allows, get a SSD for boot...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|20-227-542^20-227-542-TS,20-226-151^20-226-151-TS,20-148-357^20-148-357-02%23,20-227-550^20-227-550-TS

HDD - Samsung F3 1TB

And as you will be buying parts after sometime, I would suggest you come back when you are ready to buy as we can suggest newegg combos, which would save good money...

Thank you for the very good advice. I think I will buy an SSD after I build the computer. I am wondering when the next graphics cards will come out so I know when I should have a purchase date for my build.

^ ATI cards might be out this October, but not sure whether the 68xx or the 67xx series...
As for the Nvidia cards, mostly in the mid or late Q4...
