Default Need help building a gaming pc! HELP!

Hi. I need help building a gaming computer for about 700 just for the cpu. I work at best buy and could get some parts for a pretty decent price. an i7 build with a decent graphic card is really what i'm looking for.

What brands do you have access to?

Ideally what you are looking for is 6gb or 3x2gb of ddr3 1600 ram.
psu from a good brand be it corsair or pc power and cooling in the 650 to 750watt range.
gpu gtx280, gtx285, ati 4890 or you could save cash going with gtx260 or ati 4870. (evga or xfx)
i7 920
1336 x58 motherboard from asus, biostar or evga.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
