People will ask several questions:

1. Do you plan to overclock
2. What's your budget
3. Do you need OS, keyboard, monitor, mouse, speakers, etc.

They will tell you the following:

1. If you plan to overclock buy i5 3470k, if not - 3470
2. 700W is too much unless you want to Xfire. 520W should be fine
3. Get an ASrock z77 Extreme 4 mb if you overclock
4. Change the video to 7870\
5. If you plan to oveclock get COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus.
6 Get 2x4 DDR 3. They are optimal for gaming.

Then just put your HDD in there for storage. If your budget is lower, take out SSD, wont affect gaming performance, but will slow down boot time, game loading time etc. If you have more money, i strongly suggest a 120/128 GB SSD.
