Use roadkill922's link as a basis and the links I gave to get an idea of what you want to do. Then post your basic build on the system builder forum for peer review. Users will also offer discounts and other ideas.
Try to see if you live near a microcenter. It may save you a lot of money. Check out newegg's subscription deals, but be aware if they charge tax in your state.
