    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.
