Decent gaming rig?

My boss asked me to help him find parts for around $700 that could make a good gaming rig for newer games. I know this list is more but I am selling him my video card for $100. Does this look like a good setup for newer games..keep in mind, he is running on lower resolution probably around 1366x768

    i guess its not to bad then.

    i would go a little cheaper though if its just a 560 Ti since the res is not that high

    also try to make it lower and try adding an SSD. $10 more for 1TB is a pretty good deal

    Even going AMD is a pretty good choice.

    pretty much up to the max if you want to save more you can lower down some of the stuff like CPU or case
