Default Sub-$1000 gamin/CS5 build

Hello, first post here. I am going to build my first computer, and I will be using it for some gaming (mainly Metro 2033, Fallout (3 & New Vegas), and Sims 3. But it's main use will be for Adobe CS5 (every program included in Production Premium) and other various uses such as (light) game programming, an video editing. I want a 2600k,and I was looking at an EVGA GeForce GTX 460, but I'm open to suggestions on that as well. and I'm set on that. Suggestions for the rest of the build would be greatly appreciated.

Ignore the "set on that" part at the end, I meant to take that out.

A good power supply (800 W +). You could also try looking at the ASUS P8P67 PRO MOBO.

Do you need a monitor as well? How about an operating system?
Is the 1000 price range just for a tower?

The $1000 is just for the tower. I have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, etc... And I'm going to be running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, which I already have. So the $1000 price range is just for the tower.
