My System Specs

Default

Your choice of case
ASRock FM2A85X-ITX mobo 140$
AMD A8-5500 Trinity APU, is a 65W part 110$
G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) Model F3-1866C9D-8GAB 57$
(most systems don't need 8GB but let's say you future proof)
WiFi adapter, go USB, plenty of good model on newegg.ca under 25$, 25$
SSD : your choice of 128GB SATA III SSD (I would go Vertex4/Crucial M4) 125$
HDD : WD RED or AV-GP, 2TB 115$ (moocow build's lacks storage)
DVD burner, go external on USB, plenty models on newegg.ca, 30$
Graphics card : hold off and see what your APU can do, especially if you want to lower resolution to 1280x720, probably you won't need a discrete graphics card
So far you already face a 600$ bill, without taxes, case and PSU
