price match the motherboard at us.ncix and get free shipping as long as your kart is over 60 bucks

overclock the CPU and the intergrated GPU for max gaming performance possible

should let you play most things at medium settings at 1080p.

If your in Canada try www.directcanada.com
Its a great site and I found all my stuff cheap there, although I did end up going to boxing day sales to get parts. Like TBT said 600 just wont cut it

Only $20 above your budget and it's a great build with the 7870 that'll perform great in games and a FX-6300 to match that'll be great for everyday apps.

Wow, I am impressed with the detail and helpful information listed. I might extend my budget to cover the 850 option, but the 650 looks solid. Thanks

Yep no problem! The $650 build will definitely be enough, Even I'm thinking about downgrading and getting some profit coming from an i5 2500K, mainly because I don't do enough to warrant the i5 2500K but the FX-6300 is a sweet spot between performance, price and overclocking if need be.
