Default Help me make a PC?

Well, I am getting a PC soon. I am either going to build one (I will have a friend help!) or just buy a premade.

I need to know these!

Ram:
Case:
PSU:
HDD:
Mobo:
GPU:
CPU:
Drive:

BUDGET!!!! $1,150

Anything else I need?

Also I was thinking of an GTX 560 TI 1gb AND a i5 @ 3.10Hz

Yes, you forgot one very important thing.... What is your budget?

Ok, I have some things to take care of first but I may be able to piece together a build later today. I assume we'll be wanting a copy of windows 7? How about a monitor? Using your old one? If so, what kind of resolution are we going to be running?
It would also help if you specified what the intended use of the computer is. Obviously I assume gaming, but perhaps you like to do other things we'd have to take into account, eg, video editing.
Do you plan on overclocking at all?
Edit: also a list of games you intend to play would be nice.

If you want to overclock the i5-2500k, don't get a cheap motherboard.

If you need a really good monitor for a cheap price try this one.

Newegg.com - ASUS VS Series VS247H-P Black 23.6" 2ms LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000000:1 (ASCR)

I am buying one myself as the deal ($159) is too good to pass up.

EDIT:
I also found an excellent deal on a 560 448 core (better than the Ti). Priced at $250, this thing is essentially a 570 (minus 32 processor cores :P) for $80 cheaper and a free Batman Arkham game!

Newegg.com - Galaxy 56NKH3HS4GNK GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
