It's pretty hard to find anything decent enough to run everything on intel or even with a GPU as those prices are pretty high.
This is what i came up with and it should be able to run everything on low / medium. (The GPU cores are in the CPU so it's an APU)

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($82.98 @ OutletPC)

And if you still need your OS aswell you don't have much left for the parts.

Honestly, As much as i freaking hate to say it, For $350 dollars i would go with a prebuilt. But if you're intent on building it yourself, build something along the lines of this: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/kvfYQ7, I mustered this up in less than 10 minutes so sorry if it sucks, If you do go with that build, I would recommend upgrading to a Z97 MOBO In the future so you can Overclock, As the CPU Is unlocked. And getting a decent PSU, The one i picked is a throwaway.

This includes the OS. Would perform better than Dunois' build, worse than LucoTF's.
