Whoa with 1500 you can make a pretty insane core i7 build.

The mobo, processor and ram will be about 600, graphics (stick with something like 280's) which you can find for round 300 each now, get at least a 850 watt power supply (round 100 or so) and you might even be able to include a watercooling system with the couple hundred left(assuming you buy 2 gtx 280's)
