HEATSINK: Thermalright Ultra-120 Aluminum Heatpipe Heatsink for K8, LGA775

And still need to choose a graphics card, im waiting for some more DX10 cards to come out, and then I'll get one of those. The only problem is that this is EXPENSIVE. My budget is like $1200, and after buying a graphics card it'll be like $1400 or so. So my questions are:

Is there anything on that list that I can sacrifice and get something cheaper without changing my gaming experience too much? thanks. and reocmmending any different parts would be great, CHEAP AS YOU CAN GET THEM!
