  1. You need a monitor with that as well, I'm assuming? I'd go for something along the lines of an i3 + 560Ti, since that'll balance your system out for games (most games are limited by GPU performance).

    The hardest part of the budget will be fitting in a hard drive/solid state, since both are rather pricey at the moment.
