What parts do you recommend?

I have a Guardian 921 rb case. I bought power supply really cheap that doesn't fit inside case. Anyhow I'm trying to build a great desktop for really cheap. I bought a ASRock 970 Extreme3 motherboard, with 8 GB's GSKILL RAM its DDR3-1600. And I want to put a Quad Core in with good graphics card, etc. I need some recommendations that will fit in this case and supply a great running computer. (I'm willing to spend a couple hundred more.) Also the case came with 3 fans so I'm good on cooling... So i basically need to know a CPU, Power Supply, DVD Drive, and Hard Drive recommended. And this is going to be a school/ gaming PC. Thank you.
