For your ram you will want 4x2 other wise your motherboard will not run it in the correct channel as 3x2gb are for triple channel board setups. For your board an asrock z68 extreme 3 gen 3 would be a good choice, and for the case a bitfenix outlaw would be a good choice.

You should be able to squeeze in a 6870 on that budget. That's what you should aim for. It changes things quite a bit if you need an OS under your budget. Let us know.

I don't know what you had in mind for a $35 case, but this is the lowest budget case I know that's worth buying:
($40) NZXT Gamma:

Here's what I would do:
($115) i3-2100:
($110) ASRock Pro3:
($180) 6870:
($47) 8GB RAM:
($60) Corsair CX500:
($40) Gamma:
($80) 500GB HDD:

We're at $632 and if you want to cut it down by $20 or so then you can go with a micro-ATX board. I didn't shop for combos so you can probably do a little better price-wise. You can go with a cheaper chipset since you're not overclocking (because of the non-unlocked chip) - I wouldn't argue with an H67 board. Don't go with a PSU with less power than the CX500. The OCZ that popatim suggested is good but you can't really bank on rebates.
