Have a look at my sig: perfectly compatible HW, not expensive, easy to overclock, quite fast OOTB.
A GeForce 8800 GT should be easy to find, second hand. Else buy another compatible graphics card.
If you buy a decent case, a good PSU, a Hard Drive, a DVD Writer, you'll be left with money to spare.

If you have no idea about the parts which aren't in my sig, you could take a look here:

True, they are talking about gaming rigs, but that doesn't matter too much.

Right. You can also always follow the trusted advice a friend gave me once upon a time: "When in doubt, just buy the best sellers (& best reviewed) on Newegg." For things that don't matter to compatibility, I find it that advice very useful.

(Nice rig btw, Alessandro.)

I agree, if you are willing to do some research.

Thanks :)
