Default New PC. Need a few suggestions

alright well i'll probably be getting a new pc this summer, around the time when am2 comes out, but i think im just gonna stick w/ socket 939 cuz the prices will be lowered. anyways my budget is about $2000 maybe a little more. it will be primarily be used for gaming such as bf2, fear, and some others and definately for multitasking so i want to go dual core amd. i also dont need a monitor, mouse, or keyboard.
here are the basics of what i think i want but may change

cpu: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103546
psu: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16817103931
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820227210
(need some suggestions on this, only picked this one cuz it had such great reviews. i dont really no anything about timing and such).
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813131540
(same as the ram, dont really know much about mobos, is this one really that much different from the deluxe?).

so basically i have no idea what hdd(s) to get. i want one w/ 250g and 16mb cache for things such as music and stuff, but i have been thinking about getting a 74g raptor for the OS and some games. i also havent chosen a case so any suggestions on that would be great too.
i know you all get these kind of posts all day and are sick of them but i really need some suggestions on this.

Ok everything seems, ok about RAM timings the lower the better a 74gig raptor for OS and gamings should do fine plus the 7200RMP hdd you will wanna add. For grafics card i see the 7900GT little to expensive i like this one double the memory and higher core clock and its cheaper:
As for mobo its fine if your going with ATI card go for a radeon xpress chipset
