Well first off the i7 920 (providing it's DO / SLBEJ) is the best choice CPU on the market without spending stupid money.

The HD5850 / HD5870 are the preffered GPU choices at the moment.

A good PSU made by Corsair, Seasonic or Antec

Also what budget are you looking at for these new components?

Also if overclocking is not on your priority list and your not guaranteed to go SLI then LGA1156 might be a better, cheaper pathway for you. (though it only uses dual channel DDR3 [4gb instead of 6gb])
