8gb of 1600 ram
any 80 plus bronze
stock cooler
cheap dvd rw
500gb hdd
gtx 650 ti boost 2gb

Then when you have money you add a big ssd, 212 evo and get a better gpu

I selected the 3350P since it does not drag with it IGP and is the best I5 for the price, last on this page http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o... An locked CPU does not need or benefit from Z77 board hence the H77 selection.
HD7870Xt does have the 7770 for lunch with double the performance http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Club_3D/HD_7870_joke...

It will not bottleneck but if I have to work the Win7 in on the budget then HD7770 is the strongest card that will fit http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1VyE7
7770 should handle your resolution fine http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1VyE7

Do note that for a budget oriented build, AMD tends to be more friendly, I know you want Intel, but I'll leave this here, just in case:
