I'm not trying to discourage you from building your own. Not at all, I'm simply saying that in this price range, you'd probably save money with a pre-built machine.

Why not price out all the parts, on a machine from CyberPower, or iBuyPower, and see what that will actually cost you for the exact same build. Perhaps I am wrong, but I think you'll find your cost will be a little higher buying the parts, and building it yourself. Just wanted you to be aware of that.
Well in that case I will follow your suggestion on the CyberPower and iBuyPower. Before I build or buy anything I will be sure to ask on the forum, that way I can hopefully save money and obtain a good deal.

Good idea, the more opinions you get the better. Perhaps someone will come up with a suggestion that's more to your liking. It never hurts to ask around, and do some research.

My mistake. I missed the part about it being a gaming computer.

I don't know much (or anything really) about the "current" hardware and how things perform but I did find this:
MSI 970A-G46 AMD 9 Series AM3+ Motherboard and AMD FX-8120 3.10 GHz Eight Core AM3+ Unlocked CPU and Sony Optiarc AD7280S-OB 24x DVDRW Drive and Corsair CMX4GX3M1A1333C9 XMS3 4GB DDR3 RAM and Bundle at TigerDirect.com

That'll play most modern titles at medium-high settings.

Well it must have been a really good deal because it is now out of stock (it wasn't yesterday)...
