Just remember you will need windows 7 which is an extra $100 right there. The computer drunk listed is good, but missing that.

Take drunk's build and downgrade the 6970 to a 6850 or a 6870. Take the hundred in savings, boom windows 7.

Without knowing the resolution of the monitor you are using its hard to recommend parts . Thats critically important

But with regard to some of the parts recommended so far

The NZXT gamma is is cheap junk . Even in that price range there are better options , but idealy pay another $20 and buy a case that is well made .

The intel i3 is a decent option in this price range , it is usally beaten by AMD phenom quads in that price range . The quad will also remain responsive in situations where the i3 is too busy to do a third or forth task simultaneously

Graphic card recommendation without knowing your resolution ? Better off taking your money outside and setting fire to it to enjoy the glow

Considering not too long ago you could get this case for $32 on Newegg and Amazon, it quite cheap.
