i would head on over to the techreport and try out their editors choice build. those prices are a little old so it should squeeze right into your budget. you can drop the soundcard as well and just go onboard.

Thats a pretty decent build but personally I would go for a slightly better mobo (the V pro)..
change the SSD(vertex4) and hdd (seagate 1TB / platter drives) and change the case.. And an Asus / gigabyte 670..
Drop the blue-ray burner and the sound card.
Also I see no custom cooler there..

But it's a good guide for what to look at for your money...

Remember to price-match. ;)

Build the Fastest $1200 PC - July - YouTube

$1200 gaming build that would "kill everything". I'd spend an extra 50$ or so to get better cooling.
