CPU: i5 4670k- $250
GPU: GTX 770 Windforce Edition- $420
Motherboard: Gigabyte UD3H Z87- $180
PSU: Corsair AX750- $150
RAM: 8 GB Corsair Vengeance at 1600 MHz- $70
HDD: Any 1 TB, 64 MB cache HDD- ~$90
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 128 GB- $120
Water Cooler: Corsair H60 (only if money is available)- &65
Case: Depends on preference
TOTAL (without case): $1285
This leaves you with $215 for a very nice case. I don't feel that it is overly necessary to recommend a case, since so much of it is based on preference. I would just do a couple minutes of research (brands like Corsair, NZXT, BitFenix) and see which ones you like. If you don't spend that full $215, then put that money away for perhaps upgrading to SLI 770's in the future :) 
EDIT: If you want, you can put an extra $30 towards the GPU and get an MSI Lightning 770, which has higher clocks :)
