Is it possible to build a solid i7 3770k computer for 500$?

The last couple of days have been great in learning about budget PC builds. However, I've been making list of computer builds that have low end graphics cardS. My main budget is 700$ with a monitor, so really 600$. I just want a i7 3770k with a gpu better then the upcoming Playstation 4. Is this even possible?

Here's a $420 MoBo / CPU combo.....not much ya can buy for $180

8gb ram - $65
Case / PSU - $130
HD - $90
GFC Card - $170 (650 Ti Boost)
OS - $100
KB / Mouse - $80
Optical - $20

Why do you want a 3770k for a gaming Box....3570k will do same thing in gaming for $110 less
