I completely agree with baroon.. The only thing I might change is if your budget is a little larger go for the 4870 and corsair 750tw( which is at a great price on buy.com, I think like $85)

Firstly, the 780g's don't work with 140TDP AMD Phenoms, you need at least a 790x to run it... (and that deal is gone)

Secondly Intel is better for performance...
