Default New Rig $1000

Hey guys, time to build a new computer. I'm tired of this dinosaur with it's AMD AthlonX2 4200 processor and GeForce 7600GT vid card. So my budget is $1000 dollars and I don't need a monitor, mouse, or keyboard. I'd like to use an Antec (900 or something similar) case. The rig will be primarily used for gaming. Thanks guys!

EDIT: Also I have a Windows XP OS ready for it, but I'll probably put 7 on it until it comes out then buy it.

If you live near a Micro Center, you can get that CPU for $200.

This heatsink is for if you don't really plan to oc that much. Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
You'll need this bracket to mount it.
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-LGA1366 LGA 1366 Core I7 Socket Retention Bracket Set - CPU Fans & Heatsinks


This heatsink is pretty good if you will overclock in the future. Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 CPU Heat Sink (Socket LGA 1366) - FrozenCPU.com

Do you remember what was in the combos? I could try to find some similar ones.
