Your wishlist shows empty.

At any rate, look for a i5-2400 CPU. Not overclockable, but only 10% slower at stock speed than the overclockable i5-2500k, and still plenty fast.

A low end ASUS or Gigabyte z68 motherboard.

2x4gb DDR3 1333 speed ram.

An AMD 1gb 6870 video card.

Western Digital SATA 6gb/s 500gb hard drive

Samsung DVD RW.(around $17)

Coolermaster HAF 912 case.

SILVERSTONE ST50F-ES 500W power supply.

These are best bang for the buck, and more than enough for your requirements.
