Default build help

Hi, I've never built a computer from scratch before and I was wondering if you guys could give me some ideas for a good build. I'm in the 2,000-2,500 price range. I'm pretty set on the intel chip set. I also am monitor shopping and I want something that will go HD. Thanks and any help is appreciated.

you could easily fit a 22'' monitor in that budget, also a P5k Deluxe motherboard and when you get the TRUE don't forget 2 x 120mm/140mm
Cooler Master 690 and NZXT zero are sweet cases, sorry but i'm really not a fan of that 900

22" is too large for myself...I just don't like it becuase an 8800GTS runs like a GTX in 19inch when a GTX is in 22.
