The following build is $1097 before rebates and shipping. The PSU is a little bit big but I picked it so you can add a second video card later if you want (which is also supported by the mobo).

($120) Monitor: ACER 21.5" 1920x1080

($230) CPU: i5-2500K

($122) Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3

($47) RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X

($85) HDD: Seagate 500GB 7200RPM

($105) PSU: Corsair TX750

($235) Video Card: Gigabyte GTX 560ti

($18) Optical: Lite-ON DVD Burner

($100) Case: Antec Nine Hundred

($35) Coolermaster Hypere 212 EVO

Here are some other parts you might want to consider swapping into the above build depending on your preferences and how flexible you are with your budget.

($90) Monitor: ACER 20" 1600x900
*The disadvantage of this monitor is a lower resolution.

($130) PSU: Corsair TX670M
*This is the same PSU as above but it's modular.

($350) Video Card: EVGA Superclocked GTX 570
*This is a stronger/better card if you can afford it.

You can also switch the case to whatever you want. You can leave out the Hyper 212 for now if you want to save the $35.
