Default First build, two options, roughly $2000 limit. Advice? :)

Hey guys, ive reached a time where i have the ability to build my own computer and I have done research and come up with two options. The first is a more budget version, the second is far more performance oreintated, pricier but with lastability (i hope). This is my first build so advice is greatly appreciated, if you can see areas where i could replace parts for greater value, please feel free to say so

All prices are in $NZD. And screens not important at this point.

I really want a 5870, but i realise it is very expensive, so im figuring i could start with a 5850 or 5770 and upgrade to a 5870 further down the track.

Thoughts? Advice?
