I know you said you dont want to but with your budget you can get the i7- something like the NCIX- EVGA X58 i920 bundle for $658 plus triple channel ram about 160-220 is doable for sure.

Also don't bother with the 4870X2 go for a GTX280 ($360) OR wait and get the GTX285 (~$450?), the GTX285 is going to be a bit of brute.

For your monitor something like a Ben Q 2400WD~$330 is great for movies and games..I have that model and although its a TN panel its really nice...rich black and vivid colors, decent viewing angles.

other than that good case, psu, and drive.
