    The last build I did was back when the FX-53 was AMD's best chip. This is what I am looking at. Main uses are gaming, internet and I will be converting video from our miniDV tapes.
    I wanted something that will cover me for a while, like SATA 6gb, USB 3.0 and DirectX 11. I already have a Antec P180 case, 36gb Raptor and a Corsair 520w HX. My only concern is will that PSU be enough for all of this. It will be running 2 hdd, 2 dvd roms, video card, and 4 120mm fans.

    Budgetwise I want to stay around $600

    ASUS P7P55D-E ATX Intel Motherboard 154.99
    ASUS USB-BT21 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle Free
    Intel Core i5-750 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core 199.99
    XFX Radeon HD 5770 HD-577X-ZNFC Video Card 164.99
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 104.99

    Total: 619.96

    Thanks for your input.
