$750 budget for new build

Hello,
I want to build a new system with a budget of approximately $750 not counting the Window 7 home premium.
I mostly use the system for things like photos ,dvd video's & surfing right now.
I do however plan to start gaming so I want to make sure I'm equipped for that as well.
I already have a Dell 22 inch LCD flat panel monitor.

Can I build a decent system on this kind of a budget ??
Any Component ideas ?

Thanks for the Help !!
