i am planning on building a new gaming PC. my budget is around $1000. i will be building it in the late summer (end of august beginning of September). currently of the parts that are out because i dont know much of future parts that will be out i am planning on going ddr3 with the following parts. i will be air cooling with my CM stacker 832. heres my list of parts.

ASUS MAXIMUS EXTREME LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Qxxxx- one of the new quads coming out. i estamate around $300


Patriot Viper 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16820220288


right now this all comes out to be around $1500. $500 over what i want to spend. im guessing that the price of the gpu, the cpu, the ram, and the mobo will all drop a good amount in the 9 months i have till the build. could i go for a cheeper PSU with about 800 watts for cheeper? i am planning on OCing. altho if i am satisfied with the stock speeds i will not OC. any other suggestions to parts or ideas is greatly appreciated.
