Keyboard is up to you since its just a keyboard

Total Price- $1,373.89

Leaves you plenty enough room for shipping keyboard and any extras. An 8800GTS can be fit in there if you want to downgrade your CPU to just an E6300. Also everything i added will make your C2D an overclocking machine if you want to go with E6300. The E6600 will not give you nearly as many FPS extra over the E6300 compared to an 8800GTS over another video card. While the 7950GT is an awesome card you might just want to do that.

Also if you take a little time you could OC the E6300 with those parts to pretty high, to where it would beat a stock E6600 easily. Then again these are just suggestions and you can pick whatever you want.

have fun~ I only had 850 to go on with this christmas (not including monitor keyboard and mouse)
Thanks for all the suggestions. I think im going to go with this one, but change the GPU to and Evga 7950 GT so I can use"step-up" program to the new 8800 series later.
