I recommend investing in a San Ace 9G1212H101 -- it's the best heatsink fan you can get. You can buy them here

Also, you should consider getting 2 500 gb drives (instead of a single 1 tb drive) and setting up RAID 0 -- the speed increase is very satisfying.

That's a decent start to a build. Here is what I came up with:

Phenom II X4 955BE + OCZ 4GB DDR3-1600 Kit Combo: $239.98 + shipping (free HDMI cable & flash drive)
Cooler Master Hyper 212+: $29.96 shipped
OB Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 890GX Mobo: $107.99 + shipping
HIS HD5850 + Antec EarthWatts 750W Modular PSU Combo: $349.98 + shipping after MIR
Samsung F3 500GB: $50.58 shipped
NZXT M59 Case: $29.99 shipped after MIR and code EMCYTYP24

Total: $808.48 + shipping after MIR

A little over budget but very close to it.

EDIT: I have another recommendation. Since you said that you want to upgrade your Graphics and CPU in the near* future, I would recommend going with a better motherboard (890FX chipset) and a bigger PSU (750w at least) because you'll want those for when AMD Bulldozer (next gen CPU's) and for when you upgrade your graphics. Consequently since you'll have less money to spend I would recommend just going with an HD 5770. Although it's not as great as a HD 5850, save up some more cash and then sell your HD 5770 on ebay or something and use it to buy an HD 5870. Just what I would do.

That Ultra LSP750 is a great PSU as long as you can do cable management. And it comes with a lifetime warranty.
