Hey guys I'm new to pc building and wanted some help putting it together. My budget is $700. I would prefer if it was an amd since its cheaper. I like the new fx series but I'm up for Intel options. I don't need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers.

@spat55: the price did not account for the graphics card, so it appears lower than it really is.

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO comes with thermal paste. You don't need to waste money on something that will improve temp by only 1-3C.
