Yeah, save save save! as of a moderate cpu is around $200, you're quite far. The most expensive can go up to around $1100. Yeah...
Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.

Save. it's better to buy most of the parts together because if one turns out to be defective you won't know till way down th line and then it's harder to return them.

I guess you can always buy a case first. Then you'll have to save more for all the others.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
