I can help, answer a few questions first though.
What is this computer being used for? Gaming? Any video editing, or photoshop work?
If you game, what is the most demanding game you play, and do you care if you can't play on max settings?

Intel i5 2500k + Asus P8p67 Pro Mobo
2x2GB of G.Skill 1600 cas8 1.5v DDR3 RAM
Corsair HX850 Modular PSU
MSI GTX 560 TI TFII Graphics Card
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB HDD
Crucial C300 64GB SSD
Corsair A50 (budget cooler)
HAF 922 (you could pick any case though)

This totals out to $1,215.15 + shipping from newegg.ca

With this build you have the option to SLI the 560ti in the future (or any other graphics card you choose)

LOL @ people suggesting non-SB builds at this price, Your gonna want to go with i5 2500k or i7 2600k depending if you do video editing or not. DO NOT GO AMD unless you can wait for Bulldozer. And your gonna want @ least 8 GB ram. Haha a first person who suggested 2 x 2GB. Come on now!

Only AMD post is mine. Read or get out troll. Suggested 965 Until Bulldozer. And you are in the AMD General forums. If you want to talk about Intel go there. kthnxbye

+1 Keep the 8gb of ram... get a cheaper case ... any 80-125 dollar case will do. You will only need a huge full case if you plan on water cooling, but there are a lot of cheaper cases out there that does great fan cooling also .... and invest it into a SSD ... IMO a $1500 budget shouldn't be left without a SSD .... its like bottlenecking everything else =)

Get the 1600 mhz ver. of the ram.... you don't need the 1866 mhz vers. you probably won't see a huge difference in real life application... and if you really indeed want it..then just OC your 1600 mhz...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231416

A case like this will do. Pretty popular among the ppl here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119216

Good psu ... the TX 850 will allow you to SLI the GTX 580 when money/need to upgrade again ... then you have one of a hell gaming machine right there =)

here is the SSD, money saved from the case + ram ... will be enable you to grab this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148441

If you like to....get a different gtx 580 from ASUS... and use the money saved for a cpu cooler for OC:
