Here is one for $700


http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811144026

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130062

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819115005

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820141062

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822144701


Now that is a nice system for $700

But i would look into a quality power supply.
And of coarse you gotta find a case that you like, thats personal preference, as long as its ATX you will be fine.

Yea thats fine good call kjman, but keep in mind Momokogo the XFX card is louder due to fan speed than the EVGA card i showed you.

if thats not a problem i would go XFX as well.
