Default Gaming Rig $2500 budget

I was wondering what you would suggest for me with a $2500 limit and from what i've read about gaming I think i'd like to go with a dual core.

Leaning towards the antec 1200 case and prolly a 1000w psu but looking for suggestions on mobo, cpu, gpu, and ram.

Oh also planning on 64 bit vista and also what do you think about this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833342002

Looking to play a new mmorpg and starcraft II when it comes out.

I appreciate any help you can give me thanks.

If you want a dual core, get yourself a nice E8600, a X48 chipset, 2 HD4870X2 in XFire, dual 22" monitors, 4GB of ram, and you should be fine for a couple of years. You don't need the second monitor nor the second card. For those games I think a single HD4870X2 would be fine.

Does brand matter? I put HD4870X2 in newegg and got Sapphire, Powercolor, HIS etc. Same with the mobo and ram. I don't really know brands and what's good or not.

Came up with

Mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131334

CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115054

GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102768

Also any thoughts on the K1 network card is it necessary?
