I skimped out on the mobo a bit, and after all this it comes out to $1,008 not counting MIR and without shipping + tax... all of it off of NCIX also
so the list is
Processor = Phenom 9600
Mobo= ECS A770M-A V1.0 ATX AM2+ AMD770 SB600 Dual Channel DDR2 PCI-E16 SATA2 RAID Sound GBLAN Motherboard
GPU= Galaxy 8800 gt 512mb
Ram= Crucial Ballistix tracers
Case= Antec Nine Hundred Mid Tower Gamer Case 900 ATX 9 Drive Bay No PS Top USB2.0 1394 Audio
Hard drive= 500 gb, 32mb cache
PSU= Silverstone Element ST50EF-PLUS 500W ATX12V 24PIN Power Supply W/120MM Fan Active PFC 80PLUS RoHS
Think thats it so far, but HEY, that comes into his budget and is not a bad build AT ALL... Of course there isnt an aftermarket cpu cooler yet, and that mobo i assume is weak since it is cheap...
Suggestions please <3
