Asus a8nsli premium - $150(motherboard), AMDClawhammer around $200(CPU), 1gig kintgston ram $100or less, 2x6800(nvidia) video cards $200-220 for both, Powersupply $50 500-600 watt, a mid tower case $50.
There you go, that would make a really nice gaming rig for about $750. It'll more than likely be less than that so you could get another gig of ram. I wouldnt get better video cards than that since the new dx10 series is about to come out. And with those you should be able to run almost ANY game at maximum resolution.
That motherboard has pretty decent onboard audio so you dont have to worry about that. And if you dont have a computer toolkit - get one, make sure it has a grounding strap and spare screws,paper washers,etc. No point in risking all that $$$ and not using the proper stuff.

Gfx about the best budget card is this http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814102645
good price especially for what it can do before and after overclocking.
Mobo, a vanilla nf4 is the budget way to go, HDD anything SATA with a 16Mb cache preferablly but 8Mb is ok if you are getting a good deal.
Cpu and memory the combo i use is still one of the best value setups anywhere as the prices were low when i put it together last july and are even lower my memory on newegg is http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145450 cheap especially when you put in one of those rebate things americans love(still dont get them just make it cheaper to start with).
A toolkit is nice to have but considering how much it can sometime add up to you neednt always bother, get a antistatic wristband from an electrician friend or a trade shop they are a couple of quid apart from that i still use a swiss army knife to build and maintain computers.(why mess with what works) and as long as you get a retail boxed mobo they give you everything you need.

If you want to overclock, look at the Opterons, but if you're into gaming, the Athlon won't be a bad idea.
Here's a simple build -

Case - 60
PSU - 90
Motherboard - 90
Vid Card - 190

HDD - 85
CD/DVD-R/RW - 40
That would do you well =].
