    I suggest you wait till april 22, 2007 before building your computer that is when intel will release the E6650,E6750,E6800, E6320, and E6420 revised core2duos. Or wait for about 5-6 more months till DDR3 hits the market. And then spend 1000 dollars.

    if not:

    For the processor get a Core2Duo. ~$220 for 6400 or 6600 for $320
    For hard drive get a western digital raptor 10,000rpm for performance $200. Or Seagate 320GB for storage ~$95
    Ram depends on motherboard. Ram get 2gb.
    Power supply ~$70-100 for big wattage one (Thermaltake or Enermax) try to get a modular power supply if possible.
    Pioneer DVDRW on newegg for ~$35
    MotherBoard Depends what you want to run on it (Crossfire,SLI,a single video card) just make sure it has PCI Express 16x
    Video Card Depends
    A decent case ~$50.

    Most important parts= power supply, if you get a cheap one and it craps out it might take your whole computer with it to the grave.
    Ram= everything will run faster with more ram.
