650-750$ gaming pc build help

Recently found out the build i had in mind wouldnt work due to the fact i needed a HDD/OS (as mine has busted it seems), can anyone help me and suggest a a build around 650-750$?

I want to be able to play games such as Skyrim, Starcraft 2, Farcry 3, Tombraider, and Company of Heroes 2 on Medium-High settings with good FPS

I also prefer to shop on Newegg, so if all prices can be from there thatd be big help!

  1. Do you need a new build? Could you just replace the hard drive?
    Am I missing something?

    If I am not missing something, just buy this and replace your current hard drive with this one.

    Western Digital 1TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2W00YU4026
    (currently 70 bucks on your site of choice, newegg)

    For your OS i would recommend using a linux distro (for example Ubuntu) but if you would prefer windows, here is the link

    If I am missing something, sorry for wasting your time, could you explain your situation a bit more?
