Here's what I just went with:

X2 550 ($113)
GA-MA-770-UD3P ($75)
4gb G.Skill DDR3-1333 RAM ($82)
Corsair 550W PSU ($70)
Antec 300 ($65)
Seagate 500gb HD ($52)
Gigabyte HD4850 ($110)
DVD/RW drive ($30 or so)

Total around $600, but there's $50 or so worth of rebates in there. Prices I used were from DirectCanada.

If you can afford it, I'd suggest upping the HD to the 640gb or 1tb Caviar Black, and maybe look at a better vid card and/or a cooler for the CPU so you can o/c it.
