More than likely myself, Puddle Jumper, or PatonB. Souly doesn't really come over here very often to post.

Good man.

Pieced together a little rig for you. After I got started I realized you needed a mouse and keyboard too, but you can sacrifice the SSD for those if need be. I also left out the case just because that is personal preference as well. If you don't want anything flashtacular then grab an Antec 300 and you will be set.

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K
Motherboard:
Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAB
Video Card:
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
SSD + HDD (OS/Storage):
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC064D/AM 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641AS-RK 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
PSU:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

Those pieces up there total 889. Leaves you 110 for mouse, keyboard, and case. Doable, but if you want a fancy gaming mouse you may need to drop the SSD to accommodate.

in that case, i would suggest something like a Newegg.com - ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard MoBo paired with a I5 2500k or 3500k. that would be a very good base. then something like a 560TI or a radeon 7870 for the GPU

Also do not forget to purchase a Optical drive, they are very cheap and you will need one to install windows/ any games from a disk you have

Eh no it doesn't. I don't use one so totally forgot. Slap on a 15 dollar SATA DVDRW and you're set. Doesn't matter if it's fancy, they all work the same.
