  1. A 7850 and i5 3570K would be your best bet.

    Heres a good start, I didn't include a monitor or OS. You might consider spending a few more bucks on a 7870 instead of the 7850, but they're both great cards.
  3. With a $140 23' monitor and Win7 home premium, you're looking at about a $710 computer. With that budget you might be able to fit a 2500k and a 560ti/6950 or lower end card.
  4. Yea, if you need the monitor and OS too in that budget, I'd consider saving up a little more. Now if you live near a MicroCenter store, they have pretty good deals on CPUs In Store only, much cheaper than you will find anywhere else.

    I do in fact live a semi-distance away from a MicroCenter. Close enough to where I might take up on those discounts :D
