Same case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: Save some money here and overclock. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Same GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MUCH better power supply. It will handle any single GPU and will be fine for HD5770 crossfire if you plan on doing that later.

Better motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Better /faster memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total $659 with $40 mail in rebates. So I saved you a buck and got you better parts. lol

I would invest in a new hard drive. No reason to cripple your new computer unless it is a new drive. The Spinpoint F3 1TB is on sale for around $60 and is a great very fast drive.

I'd drop down to a 555 on the CPU and grab a 6850, with the other components that anort mentioned. Faster gaming and better upgrade-ability that way.

edit: or just drop down to the 555 and keep the 5770 if you're looking to cut out cost.
