Imo Wait for Bulldozer to be released, even if you can't afford it the prices of PhenomII's should drop/there will be plenty of people selling there old PhenomII Cpu/motherboards, plenty of money saving opportunity.

Edit:- Also would be good to know what you're going to be doing on the rig and what your budget is

how about skimping on SSD/Case/PSU a bit and going for a better performer right away ?
CPU PhII x4 840 3.2Ghz 95w Box 110$ shipped or
CPU PhII x4 820 2.8Ghz 95w Tray 105$ and grab a nice performer ZALMAN CNPS10X 40$\\30$ AR shipped
Mobo Asrock 870 EXTREME3 90$ (heatsinked power phase , 8x8x CrossFire support , Sata 3 , Usb 3) shipped
Ram PNY 4GB 1600mhz CL8 55$\\35$ AR shipped
PSU Antec TP-NEW 650w 80$ shipped , dont realy need a 750w for a 6850 CF in future as 1 card only takes 140w , so 2 cards 280w+95w CPU=375w and plenty of room for hard drives and overclocks
GPU MSI 6850 180$\\165$ AR + gift card
Case Rosewill DESTROYER 40$ after gift card , shipped or
Case HEC Blitz 40$ shipped

ur build is 590$ without gpu and without a 100% quad core , this one comes to 575$ with the gpu u wanted a 100% quad and a nice 1600Mhz CL8 ram kit
