Phenom ii x6 1055T

4GB DDR3 1600 Kingston HyperX
$74.99 -$25 MIR

Corsair 550VX PSU
$79.99 - 10% -$20 MIR

Powercolor Radeon 6850

$119.99 - $20 -$10 MIR

ASUS 24x Burner

Antec P180
$79.99 -$25 MIR

Samsung Spinpoint F3
$56.99 - $5 with promo code "take5"

About $675 (w/o shipping) after rebates.
Lots of room in that case to add another spinpoint for raid 0 and you can remove the cage for another 6850 down the line for CFX.

I appreciate both of your advices. Thanks a lot. Btw I do not intend to use any hardware that I already have. I plan to use this as a desktop machine for my day to day activities and multimedia and also for database heavy programming and testing activities. I hope the above config will suit best. Any change .....? Btw can it go cheaper?

I think the better processor and higher value of RAM will contribute to better performance in database heavy programming and testing activities
