Additional Comments: I want a good gaming PC without going completely broke.

  1. since you are buying 1-2 items at a time
    First Buy This GPU and the PSU listed
    Then Wait For Sandy Bridge
    When it comes out grab the cpu and mobo
    The rest of the build is nice
    I suggested going for 1 6950 instead of 2 460's b'coz you can add one later
    In CF The are equally powerful as the costlier 570's and 580's
