Help me build an $1100 Gaming Machine

Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: $1100

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming (Call of Duty and other FPS, surfing the internet, watching movies

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: None (see notes)

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe at a later date when taxes come back

Monitor Resolution: 28 inches @ 1920x1200

Additional Comments: I would like to be able to switch out the motherboard and processor whenever Sandy Bridge is fixed or Bulldozer comes out, so the other pieces need to be able to switch over. I'd like to have the SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0 capability. So I'm looking not to spend a lot on the MB/processor now since it will be replaced. My brother has a triple core AMD processor based system, so if I go AMD, I can give it to him when I upgrade the MB/processor.
