My System Specs

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.
Thanks for the suggestion.
