    For the three parts you mention,

    the price should be about $877USD inc. shipping.

    For a functional computer though, you'd still need at a minimum, a graphics card, power supply, hard drive, optical cd or dvd drive, and operating system.

    For a gaming computer, a 7600gt or 7900gt card is a nice fit if your on a budget but still want good performance.

    Be sure to get a good power supply, like antec, seasonic, enermax, etc. I'd recommend getting a 400w or higher power supply.
