I need:
CPU
MOBO
RAM
HEATSINK AND FAN
HDD
VID CARD
PSU
CASE

I would wait if I were you.
I think they are going to be released before the end of the year.
Current CPU's and GPU's prices will all have dropped by the end of the year thanks to Quad core and DX10 cards. So you'll get a better bargain if you can't afford a brand new CPU and/or GPU then.

G80 is supposed to be released the 8th of November I believe, and I think Kentsfield is to follow shortly thereafter if not on the same day.

I can only recommend waiting. Shouldn't be too long (supposed to be Nov. 8 but it will most likely take a little while for the public to start getting them).
