    Need more parts of course, but I just need to go :(
    But is this something in the lines you want?
    - SILVERSTONE SUGO SG02-BF Black ABS / SECC Steel MicroATX Desktop: $75 (can handle 12" video cards)
    - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular: $110 (best to get a modular in a small case)
    - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit: $100
    - SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner: $17
    - Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache: $115
    - Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW120A3K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD): $219

    - MSI R7970-2PMD3GD5/OC Radeon HD 7970 3GB: $600 (factory overclocked edition @ 1010MHz)

    TOTAL: $1,571
  3. I don't need to account for OS, but I do need to account for monitor, mouse, keyboard and headset in the budget(So I guess 1600 - 350 = 1250, or something around that)

    I was thinking about a 2500K and a HD 7950, but I don't know nothing about cases, power supplies, etc. And how to fit a nice SSD and HDD in the budget.
