Need help building my budget gaming rig!

Right, so I was making a thread before, but then my browser crashed and everything I put it is ALL gone... so I'll make this one brief. I got a bunch of parts for my gaming rig I'm building, but I havn't chosen a video card/psu yet. If it's not too much trouble, can you guys look over the stuff I'm getting, and make some recommendations/changes? Without a gfx card or psu, right now my rig is coming to about $472.00 (excluding tax)... it is going to be made up of:

Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid TowerComputer Case

WD 1tb internal HD

G.SKILLS Ripjaws X series (2 x 4) 8 gb


Intel core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge

$472, mostly because some of it is on sale, and takes out nearly 70 dollars. Also, whatever you add/change, make sure the final price stays around the 650-700 range. Thank you for the help!

P.S I already have a mouse, keyboard, and display, so those wont be needed.

    Well, I didn't use the rig... but I used that site and made my own. Took me a few hours (since I'm on a tablet atm) but I finally finsihed it. What do you guys think?

    Took your idea instead, much better, but I did change some things (cheaper case and ram) which allowed me to get a cheap CPU cooler... anyway, here is the 'new' rig.
