CPU should be an Intel i5 2500k.
Get an SSD for boot drive (preferably a Crucial m4).
GTX 660ti will probably suit your needs for gaming.
Get a Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 64MB Cache 7200RPM Hard Drive (1TB is enough for games, and documents). Get a larger one if you think 1TB is not enough. Just do not spend over $150 on a hard drive.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler (Great cooler).
8GB of RAM is far more than enough for any game, more is only necessary if you are doing more intense tasks.
ASUS or AsRock ATX motherboard (ATX motherboards are more easier to work with, considering that the components have larger spaces in between).
Get an Antec Dark Fleet 100 case.
I don't know how much all of this costs, but I am assuming it is pretty close to your budget.

I think you should get about a 550-650w power supply. Corsair is a strong brand.


Is the one that is on pcpartpicker good enough that you linked?

The ssd is not good for the money. Go for a samsung 840 for $99. PSU Might be a overkill, estimated wattage is only 349 watts. XFX 550w is really good

crucial m4 vs samsung 830/840 vs intel 330/335.... meh, nobody is ever going to notice the difference in the real world, all three are by far the best most consistent reliable non enterprise/msata ssd's

for 800-900 do not get a gtx660, iceclock got you a 7950 which is about 60% faster. if all your going to do is game and your not making money with your computer then the faster video card is way better.
