intel core i5 2400 3.1 ghz
antec 300 illusion case
gskill ripjaws x 2x2gb cl8 1600mhz
ASRock H61M-VS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D
samsung spinpoint f3 1tb.

that should be in your budget.
the integrated graphic of 2400 should be enough for watching movies and core i5 will be powerful for burning movies pretty quick

or if you want a dedicated gfx, the 4670 will be enough
