$600-800+ gaming / programming build

What will you be doing with this PC?
I'm looking to build a computer for mostly gaming (primarily StarCraft II, and games on a similar level, but I want it to last me a while, if it can) with the ability to concurrently stream or run FRAPS, but also for programming (including applications with 2D graphics involved), and some casual-level audio/video recording/editing.
What is your maximum preferred budget?
I'd prefer to spend $600-800, but am not opposed to going up to $900, or maybe even $1000 if the difference in performance is significant enough across the jump.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC?
After another week or two for accumulating funds, I'd like to amass the components as soon as I know what I want. I can first make a practical trip to Microcenter in about two weeks
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget?
I need pretty much all of the internals. I have peripherals like keyboard, mouse, and monitor lined up for me already. I'm all set on an OS, too. I also have a case already (NZXT Phantom 410). Oh, and I have an optical disc drive taken care of, as well.
Which country will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in the US, are you near a Microcenter store?
I am in the US, and I am near an Microcenter.
If reusing any parts, what parts will you be reusing?
I'm not sure if I'm discouraged from doing this here, but I have the following pieces which, if they are suitable for a build in at my target level, I can use (I don't know specs very well). If any or all are terribly outdated, I have no problem buying an upgrade:
—Case: NZXT Phantom 410
—PSU: LiteOn PS-5251-08
—Motherboard: MCP73M02H1
—CPU: Pentium E2200 Dual Core 2.20GHz
—GPU: Radeon HD 4670 1GB
—RAM: one 2GB stick, and one 1GB stick
—Monitors: 2 1080p LCD monitors, one 23" Acer and one 19" HP. I also plan to connect it to a 43" plasma TV from time to time for watching movies and such.
—Other: a bunch of fans, but honestly, I don't know which work. Where I need fans, they might as well be listed anyway.
Will you be overclocking?
I am interested in it, but won't be doing it right away if I do.
Are there any specific features you want/need from the rig?
I mean, I guess it would be cool if it's capable of somewhat efficient Bitcoin mining. Not necessary, though. I do need a healthy amount of USB ports, however. Eyefinity or something similar would be a neat feature, but I'm not sure where that lies with respect to my preferred price range. I like having options.
Do you have any specific preferences?
I do like the idea of booting from an SSD, and having one or more HDDs beyond that. Also, I'm partial to AMD, for what it's worth. I also would prefer internal components that don't light up, or at least don't flash, as I hear many do.
Blah blah blah OS?
Taken care of already. Student deals are awesome.
Thank you in advance.

Any other smalltime miners that switched from bitcoin?

I mined for about a week on bitcoin with my Radeon HD 4670, getting about 34Mhash/s, and to date I have like 8 bit pennies. It's not worth running my PC 24/7 for some bit pennies, so I'm giving Namecoin and its smaller difficulty a shot. So far it looks good, mining for about 10 minutes and I've almost got a name penny!
It also helps that a distributed DNS system is the goal that I'd prefer to be working towards.

[Build Help] r9 280 or 280x

Hello guys! So i am trying to decide which card to get.
  1. A R9 280 msi twin frozr at retail price.
2.A R9 280x gigabyte wind force, which has been used for bitcoin mining for about half a year, but is about 20$ cheaper than the 280.
I am concerned about what the downsides of buying the used 280x would be. It has 1.5 years of guarantee left. but what if he over clocked it? will the guarantee still count? Also, here is the build i am planning.

Cannot connect to Bitcoin RPC

I'd really appreciate some help, I'm running amd64 debian squeeze and I've downloaded the bitcoin client, poclbm, and phoenix. I'm trying to pool mine at and I've used "./ -u -p --host= --port=8337 -d 0" which returns "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC". I also tried "./ -u DEVICE=0" and that returns [16/06/2011 17:43:44] Phoenix r101 starting... [16/06/2011 17:43:44] Failed to connect, retrying..." Obviously I've added in my user and password.
Here are the two devices I can use:

And here is my lspci -v:

If anyone can shine some light on the subject or just guide me in the right direction that would be great, thanks.
