Do you need monitors? If so, how many, what resolution? Do you need an operating system, Windows 7 or 8?

Here is what I have so far. Link

This set up will run any game on the market at max settings at 1080p resolution.

It is within your price range, but we can take it down a notch if you feel it is too much.

This setup will also leave alot of room to expand in the future if you ever want to crossfire your GPU or overclock your CPU, add more RAM, etc..

Both of these builds are nice - definitely recommend getting a 250GB or so SSD and passing on a hard drive completely. If you decide to store media on this rig, can always add a HDD later.

Think I'd take Ryan's build, change ram to low profile, add the Evo air cooler, drop the HDD, and get a non-GHz edition GPU and OC it myself given that card's non-reference cooling (or get a Gigabyte Windforce).
