I suggest that you give a budget and purchase time frame that is a bit tighter. Now until May is too vague. If your not buying until around May, come back closer to that time, since the market will be quite different than it is now.

I think that OP doesn't know what budget is needed and simply wants to know the cheapest build that can handle DotA2 and most other games on high settings excellently and has 1TB or higher capacity for storage. The time frame issue is still a hurdle to avoid, but budget seems to be obvious IMO- just throw together a good 1080p system, so probably around $600-800.
