Why don't you just part out your CPU and motherboard. You can reuse almost everything else in your current build as upgrades will likely not yield performance.
New parts to purchase:
1. i7-970 $549 - 6 cores, 12 threads, and yes, better than Sandybridge for heavily multithreaded apps...
2. Asus Rampage III Formula $249
3. 1x 4GB stick of DDR3 that matches your current 8GB (2X4) kit (for a total of 12GB) $50
4. 128GB SSD for applications - $220
Total cost to you: $1070 - cash from 1100T and AM3 motherboard
With the $500 you have left in your budget, you can grab a second GTX580...Edited by ddx - 2/26/11 at 6:06pm
