My System Specs


That's a fine budget for a gaming computer. i5 3570k $200, z77 motherboard of your choice $150, 2x4gb 1600mhz ram $40, case of you choice for say $80, quality 650w power supply (xfx, corsair, seasonic, or antec) for $70, 1tb hard drive $80, a 120gb ssd for $120, optical drive $20, windows $100, gtx 670 for $300. That plus tax and shipping will be under budget. That should leave you enough room to spare for a decent monitor $120-150 and keyboard and mouse. If it goes too expensive you could get a slightly cheaper case, and/or drop to a gtx 660ti. If the computer will not be overclocked you can save another $20 by dropping down to an i5 3470 $180. If it will be overclocked grab a budget cooler like a hyper 212 $20-30.
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3570K 1.09v/4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb@1866mhz, XFX R9 280X DD, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, Intel 530 120GB
