let me give you a config without overclocking,crossfire.SLI(with this features a config is provided below)
cpu- i3 2100 3.10 ghz
M.B(mother board)- intel dh61ww
Ram- 4gb ddr3 1333mhz
hdd- 500gb\1TB (according to your needs)
Cabinet- Cooler master elite
Psu- corsair cx400 or cooler master cm 460(depending on your gpu and no of drives used)
Gpu(if u need)- hd 5770/6850
This will be in range from 600$-700$

IF you want to overclock the price may go a bit more high

here is the config with overclock,crossfire,and SLI
cpu i5 2400 3.10ghz
M.B intel dp67bg
Ram 8 gb
psu a 500-750 watt of cooler master(any other good Brand its not wise to save in that area) should be enough
Rest the same
Note:the price will be much more than mentioned above
hope this helped
