Gaming rig for ~$700
Im actually getting this quote for my little brother (although Im due to build a new PC sometime soon as well).
He and his wife have a budget of around $700, but that budget has to include a monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse as well.
He wants a PC that would be plenty for gaming, and something that can play most PC games just fine (I doubt he'll be playing Crysis 2 anytime though lol).
What setup would you guys recommend?

A few years back, you folks helped me build my PC and it was greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your assistance!
