Case: Rosewill LINE-M Micro-ATX | $49
MB: ASUS P8Z77 M| $115
CPU: Intel i7 3770K| $314
Cooler: True Spirit 120|$43
RAM:Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB DDR 1600 1.35v|$78
GPU:EVGA GeForce GTX 650 2048MB | $143
SSD:Samsung 840 Pro 256GB| $234
HDD:add later if needed
PSU: Corsair TX 750 from old case.
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64 | $139

Cost: $1115

UPDATE: Feb 2014-I actually completed this build. I runs great, still no HDD, used an i5 processor, GTX 660 2GB GPU, Corsair ram. The PSU from my old build was a lot of work to stuff all of the un-used cables in that small case. I should have just bought a smaller, maybe modular PSU, although, I discovered on later builds that partially modular PSU's are fine because there are always basic cables that must be installed.

I am building a new system soon with an Intel 3570K for $229. It is the same as the 3770K but no hyperthreading. I don't need the threads for gaming
but I don't know what you are doing with your pc.

Agree, drop the processor to a i5-3570K and use the difference to get a better GPU.

Also you can get RAM with the same specs for almost half the price.

I'm sorry I didn't mean to bump this, I bumped the bump button by accident.
