Could you fill this out: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic...

Assuming you have to get OS, you still could get a pretty decent build.

Check out my $500-$650 build here:

Instead of the 7870 get the 7850 which puts you at $570.

Total: $639

E.G means for example and the reason it says 600-800 is it's part of the requirements to post a request to make a build, you have to go here and fill this out: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic... The standard example is 600-800 OP just didn't delete the EG which you don't have to.
