Is that 700 for just the tower, or all the peripherals too?

Well, you are looking at borderline low end PC if you equate cheap mouse/kb for about 60 or so, then about 100-150 for a good monitor and anything else you may want.

After that, you're looking at a 500 dollar PC with an 800 dollar budget. Just so you know. That will get you along the lines of an i3 3220, possibly a GTX 650ti Boost, and a 500GB HDD.
