Exclamation $700 First Time Build *Please Help*

This is my first time build. I am looking for a gaming computer and am willing to pay about $700.00. I already have a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Some of the games I play are Counter Strike, Team Fortress 2, and Warhammer online. Please help.

Thanks in advance

This build is $679 before mail in rebates and would have no problem maxing those games out.

Second PJ's build, you can go with the XFX card and different hard drive but there won't really be a difference to justify the extra cash, but i would chuck in the 650tx in case you decided to crossfire 4890s.
