Default Need advice on new rig and build

So this is what I have currently:


LIAN LI Lancool PC-K7B
GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
OCZ Platinum 4GB DDR2 1066
XFX GTX 260 OC
WD SE16 7200 RPM SATA 640 GB
Samsung 1 TB Spinpoint 7200 RPM 32MB Cache (have two of them)
SAMSUNG 22X SATA DVD Burner
CORSAIR 750TX PSU
Win7x64
Samsung 20 inch LCD 1680x1050

As you can tell this build is from 2008 so lasted me a good 4 years. I finally have some cash and want to upgrade. I was hoping to keep the LIAN case, the 3 hard drives, PSU (not sure if PSU can cover a new PC?), and the LCD screen.

I was thinking of getting new mobo, cpu, ram, video card, and depending upon price and get an SSD drive for the OS, and use the existing 3 drives for storage.


I have not been keeping up with the latest hardware and video cards only because if I do I want it, and I know my wallet cannot afford it.

So any advice? I was hoping to spend no more then $1500, not sure if that is possible.

Thanks guys!
