Default New Build - anyone have suggestions?

I'm looking for a new build. I think I'm going to give my dad my current PC and build one for myself.

I'll need everything BUT a HD (I already have a 500 GB), keyboard/mouse, and monitor (already have a 22" Samsung).

My budget for all of this is about $700. I live in NJ, so I get taxed from Newegg, too. I will be using this PC for occasional gaming (TF2, occasional CoD4), web browsing, multi-tasking, etc.

Thanks!

Yeah, I get taxed at the Egg, too... but you can't beat 'em on some things.

$555 plus shipping and tax from NewEgg.

You can add $10 and go with the 4870 if you want:
