Default help with mah new build

I am looking to get a new system in approx 3 months.

I have a rough budget of 1600 bucks including the SSD drive, the OS and another monitor.

I want a hexacore amd and a fermi nvidia.

I have a few components picked out but some are placeholders like the case (still unsure what look I want) and I cannot decide what cooling to get. this is what I need help with, that and trying to get the best system for 1600 bucks.

must be from US based retailer.

You should get GTX 460 1GB instead of GTX 465, it is better and consume less power
