Really good price for the Ivy Bridge I5. Not really worth paying the extra 20 dollars more for a Haswell I5. Also, IB generally overclocks better than Haswell, so included a nice AIO water cooler to take advantage of this. Solid motherboard at a good price.

One of the fastest stock clocked nVidia 770's out right now. It'll provide great performance at 1080p for the price.

DDR3 1866, CAS 9 Ram from my favorite brand, g.Skill.

Standard 1tb HDD, and optical drive. Windows 8.1 because I've been using it for about a month, and I see no reason to not recommend it. However, Win7 is the same price, so go with what you want for the OS.

Also included is a 250gb SSD from Samsung. Great performance and a good price to decrease boot times and load times for gaming.

Solid case as well. There are several options around this price point too. Fractal Design Define R4 w/window can usually be found around this price point too, and that's another great option.

Semi-modular, 750w Silver certified Psu from XFX. Very nice option and great build quality for the price.

Although I know others have already posted, I thought I'd put my opinion in on what you should buy. Although this is $15 over budget, it has alot more storage, a better PSU, a better case, and RAM that will actually match and look nice with the rest of the build.

If you don't need windows though, then it;s about $90 cheaper :) 

And, although IB processor overclock better (high clock speed), Haswell perform about 6% (at the same clock speed), which makes up for that difference in overclocking capability.

You can change the PSU, the CPU, maybe a better GPU, and add more RAM, but that'll scrape off a lot of money.

That's a horrible use of $700...
