Note: I am not actually building this. im just putting it up so that others may get some guidelines for their build.

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 with 500w PSU - 85$ (or 50 withut psu)
Optical drive: CD/DVD Burner - 26$
CPU: i5 2500k - 230$
HDD: seagate barracuda 7200 1TB - 95$
Motherboard: ASUS p8z77-v LX - 145$
RAM: Corsair value select 4GB(2x2GB) - 30$
GPU: GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 230$
OS: windows 7 home premium 64-bit OEM - 100$

If you didnt get a PSU with the case then i recomend
OCZ Fatal1ty 550w - 60$

This Comes roughly to 1000$ dollars depending on where you buy and live.
If you have any suggestions leave them below :) 

Wow I have read some of the answers and yes some of those would be better choices :D

Why do people habitually skimp on the PSU. Its the single most important piece of hardware you can put in your PC. Neither one of those is a good choice. Go with a 500w Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, PC Power and Cooling, or Antec PSU.
