Well

Case, if you wanna make it cheap the Antec 300 has had good reviews. PSU wise i'd aim for a quality 650Watt PSU. The corsair HX/TX 650 is pretty good. Memory i'd go with either the Ripjaws that are quite common on i5's or the corsair XMS3's.

2 5770's will probably perform slightly better than the 5850, but long term i'd go with a single 5850 and then throw in a second one later on. Also, for Physx i'd stick with something like a 9600gt, I think that's cheaper than the 240. Not sure though. Motherboard i'd personally get the Asus P7P55D Pro or the Gigabyte UD5, both are epic boards.

Comps

Mobo: The Gigabyte H55-UD3H is a great OCing board but lacks 2x16 PCI-E lanes like all i5's and lacks Riad support.

the Asus Rampage III Gene is also a solid Oc'ing board (M-ATX)

PSU: Click 750watt antec earthwatts

As for case, have a look at fractal Designs R2. I just got one and it is a fantastic case.
