cx-430 PSU $30
CM elite 330 case $35
Ripjaws ddr3 1600 2x2gb $40
seagate 500gb hdd $35
lg burner $15
windows 7 $99

You already have case and power supply, so that would knock $65+tax off the price I paid and if you don't need windows thats another $100 +tax off the price.
This is very similar to a build I just did using the i3-2100 and from what I gather, he is very happy with it. I would definitely go with something like this over 775.
