I believe jacksfrag on youtube built a nice gaming pc for about your asked $400 range.
Your motherboard has to have the same chipset as your cpu.Like for example, a i7-3770k has a z77 chipset, therefore the mother board has to support z77.Chipsets are the little pins of your cpu, its like a poweroutlet, a 3 pin wouldnt go in a 2 holed outlet.Your graphic card mainly determines your outcome, though a bad cpu could "bottleneck" or hold it back from the graphic card's full power.
