CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

RAM:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

PSU:
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST70F 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
That is probably the best I could find for a modular psu. Maybe someone else can find a better one.

Case:
Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Total comes to $578.92, after mail in rebate. Then you have maybe $30 of shipping.

Edit: Xan beat me to it

If he's really in a tight budget, he can go for that Antec 300 instead of the 902. Hopefully the HD4870X2 can fit in there nicely.

Along with the G. Skill you suggested and keeping the Xclio Greatpower, the total comes to around $620+

Kinda sucks to have to put such a nice build in a tiny little case though.

I was thinking the same.

I would look at either the Centurion 590 or the CM690,They are a bit bigger and have way better air flow.

If I've said it once... Newegg.com - ARK SR-8100BG Beige Pedestal Server Case 7 External 5.25" Drive Bays - Server Chassis
Loads or room, classy case and bargain price (an improved version of a $160 silverstone with $100 off)
