well i would recommend and intel i5 2500k 3.3 for gaming i have it and its awesome and its a beast overclocker
for a gpu i would get an msi version of a gtx670 so you can overclock it 4b ram thats enough 1tb d caviar black also have that one for the ram 1600mhz kingston the case i cant really sugest since i dont care about that mine is thermaltake commander ms i its effective and not bling the psu i think a thermaltake toughpowr xt775w or 885w is good and for the motherboard msi p67 c43 b3 its a buget one but a good overclocker if you dont want sli then its good otherwise no i think this should be in your budget if
