Wanting to see some other opinions before I buy anything. Absolute most money is $750. My only requirement is that it have a Radeon HD 7870 XT as I think I'm in love with this GPU.

Go with an AMD FX 6350 or 6300. It's the best price for preformance CPU, and performs on par of a Sub-200 Dollar i5 for the price of $120-150.
Apart from that nothing much. I'd suggest a 1 TB HDD for storage, but no SSDs. No point of them in your budget.
CoolerMaster has some nice cases, so dish around 50 for a Mid-Tower Case, and another 50-60 on a CoolerMaster/Corsiar or whatever your brand choice is for a decent PSU. 500W should be good.
Make sure your Motherboard has PCI Express 3.0 to get the best speed out of the GPU. And 2 x 4 GB 1600 MHZ RAM sticks, and you should have a great Gaming PC for that budget.
I'm planning on doing the same around Christmas, Except most probably stick with a 7850 or the next gen 87xx or 88xx card :D 

None of those parts will bottleneck your machine up.

They didn't have the 7870 XT so i just added the OC version. I don't know what country you live in, but something like that should be pretty good.

Yeah sorry the XT may have been too specific, other deviants of the 7870 will be fine as long as they're the 2GB version. Also to I'm from the US, and this looks pretty decent. Thanks
