Yes, I would start by looking at the system builder marathon PC for the $650 build on the mane page here:

Everything looks good on it, though I personally would have gone with an intel brand motherboard since I have had bad luck with Gigabyte in the past.

Also consider going with a HD 7850 instead of the HD 6950, their performance is about the same. But the HD 7850 has more features and is more readily available.

The extra money over the $650 can be used for monitor, keyboard, etc.
