The Sunbeam NUUO is much better, the ram is much better and cheaper.

I'd go Dual-Core and get a 7900GTX, then skimp on the Hard-Drive and case.

A 7900gtx and a dual-core ALONE is around 800bucks..

Oh yeah, and if you take out the mouse and keyboard, you could get the 3700+ and some nice cooling. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061

Well there ya go, it has a 7900gt and stuff which is ok and BTW this is my first build i have came up with, YAY

total of 1182 bucks (well around that)

p.s hope i didnt miss anything.
This setup seems to be your best bet. I would go with some G.Skill for the ram and downgrade the keyboard. For 1200, dual-core and a gtx seem a little overkill. Depending on the needs, upgrading the hdd might be a consideration. I also agree about going with the Soprano. Its a great case and looks a little more modern/sophisticated. I personally don't trust case PSUs. The Sunbeam NUUO has some great reviews and will provide solid power for the setup. Good luck with everything!
