Not many people can recommend CyberPower. They build your PC for you, but at a higher price than it's worth. Just get the parts and build it yourself. Is this supposed to be a gaming pc, do you want it silent, storage, etc.

I really don't want to build it myself seeing as it would be the first time. Yes, I'd use it mostly for gaming, storage isn't a priority, and not too sure about the silent aspect... But I doubt it'd get too loud for me.

So, when you need a pc again, you are gonna build it? This doesnt make sense because the second time, it will still be your first time...

Building a pc is not as hard as it looks. There are a multitude of videos on youtube about building one, you just have to go for it. Here is one of the best of the videos...(this is the first of 3)

lol The fact that I'm already selecting parts is big for me, so building it myself would be the next level... However, if I can get the same kind of computer for much cheaper (or a better one at that), then I'll call up a friend and we'll build it together.

Alright So you didnt list your gfx card, but the one I have is best for its money. The one I chose is best for its money. Trust me, you are gonna be able to max out almost any current game.
So here it is:
My explanations for each is underneath each in bold:

PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FzBe
Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FzBe/by_merchant/
Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FzBe/benchmarks/

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Amazon)
Same as the one in your configuration, you do not need the cooler the build you listed because this CPU is not overclockable, so stock will be fine
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($87.55 @ Newegg)
This one has fairly decent reviews, plus it is the newest chipset so if you do buy a new cpu, you can overclock better on this
Memory: G.Skill Value 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($29.98 @ Outlet PC)
Ram is same speed but this one is same channel, one stick versus two, if you want two sticks you can get it at same price
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($62.99 @ Compuvest)
1tb hdd, twice as much as you have listed
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Video Card ($159.99 @ Newegg)
ONe of the best cards out for its money right now according to tomshardware, nice card, probably better than the one coming with the one you configured
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case ($29.99 @ Newegg)
Cooler Master is reputable company, I just picked the cheapest case they made since it is all subjective
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Corsair is good with psus, you do NOT need 600 watts unless you are going two GPUs which you arent with that budget
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer ($17.98 @ Outlet PC)
Once again, cheapest one I found, trust me, most drives are the same
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (32-bit) ($89.98 @ Outlet PC)
Total: $713.44
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

You probably could find a cheaper card and knock off 50 or so dollars
