O.S.: Windows 7 OEM
The cost comes to: $903.91 and it'll play portal, skyrim and minecraft just fine.

Thats a good build, I would probably switch out the power supply because I haven't heard the best things about coolermaster power supplies and maybe switch out that ram for this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231424 but otherwise looks fine to me thumb.gif

I am going to have to list everything from amazon because I think i am currently banned from Newegg. There should be little difference in price anyways.

cpu: i5-2400 = $190
case: nzxt Source 210 = $40 (there is a white verison if you dont like black)
mobo: MSI P67A-G43 = $115
gpu: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti = $225 (also have 20 mail in rebate)
ram: whatever Phoenixlight recommend should will work = ~40 (guessing on the price here, unless ram prices has change since the last two days i been banned from newegg lol)
hd: whatever Phoenixlight recommend should will work = ~120 (guessing on the price here too)
psu: Corsair CX 500 = $58
cd drive: Asus 24xDVD±RW = $21

total = 809 before 20 mail in rebate

i guess my build is not much different from Phoenixlight but I just offer a card a bit stronger while keeping in his price range.

I would not get the Coolermaster GX650 (review below) also you only need 500w with 6870.

Edit:
sweet jesus my temp ban from form newegg is finally over. here is the build from newegg. some stuff is still from amazon because amazon offer free shipping.

cpu: i5-2400 = 190 - 10 promo code EMCNHHJ32
case: nzxt Source 210 = $40 (there is a white verison if you dont like black)
mobo: ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 = 105 (cheaper verison of phoenixlight board, it just doesnt offer sli/crossfire)
gpu: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti = $225 (also have 20 mail in rebate)
ram: Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB = 39
hd: same hd as phoenixlight =130
psu: Corsair CX 500 = $58
cd drive: Asus 24xDVD±RW = $21
