Default need some advice

and once again i have hit a snag

i'm basically out of till i start my new job in a week or 2 time and i will not be able to afford my pc i had planed so i've decided to scrap it and start again, with the 9900 and 4*** series on the way in it couldn't of been better

i just basically need some help and advice on everything i really haven't got a budget but i'm planning on saving 1600 for the pc and my driving licence if that's any kind of budget ( but that's for a few things not just pc )

i already have a case for it along with some DDR2 800mhz ram (which i could re-use in a different pc), i'm not really bothered about SLI or XFIRE or intel and AMD for that matter

i just basically need the pc for gaming, music and video use and the odd photo shop use, i also would like it to last (on the guides my current one is coming up to 5 years old) so top notch parts are in order well with in reason

and thanks for the suggestions

My new pc spec's ~

Case ~ nexus caterpilla
Mobo ~ Gigabyte GA~P35~DS3R Rev 2.0
CPU ~ Intel Q6600
HDD ~ 2 x 500gb western digital drives
Ram ~ 4GB worth (4 strips) of OCZ 2GB PC2-6400 Platinum Rev 2.0
PSU ~ Corsair 750TX
GPU ~ GTX 295

OS - Windows 7 Home 64-bit
