    4650 sucks for gaming...they will all run just fine, but it won't really be a good gamer card, you can do much better with about $700 USD.

    I would recommend a Core i5 750 build, but if you are set on AMD:

    AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition Heka 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Processor Model HDZ720WFK3DGI - OEM $109

    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail

    GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

    Alternatively, you can use a ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
    at $91, but it is not necessary, and more expensive, but it is a solid motherboard and one I would buy personally. Again, not really necessary.

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - Retail $93

    CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Retail

    That adds up to 377 with the cheaper motherboard, then you can set aside maybe 100 - 150 USD for a case of your choice, I personally like the Antec 902, plus 20 - 30 more if you need a DVD drive and end up with under $560 USD, leaving you with enough money for a SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail $164.

    Remember that you will need to reformat and reinstall your OS.
