Basic computing & flash. No problemo.

a10-6800k APU ($150)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=83853&vpn=AD680KWOHLBOX&manufacture=AMD

MSI a75 mATX mobo ($60)
has DVI, HDMI, and VGA outs, so you're pretty much set unless you wanted dual-link DVI for 2560x1440.
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=76851&vpn=FM2%2DA75MA%2DE35&manufacture=MSI

G.Skill Sniper 2x4gb 1866 RAM ($71)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59977&vpn=F3%2D14900CL9D%2D8GBSR&manufacture=G%2ESkill

Fractal Design Core 1000 mATX case ($30)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=81159&vpn=FD%2DCA%2DCORE%2D1000%2DUSB3%2DBL&manufacture=Fractal%20Design&promoid=1083

EVGA 500w PSU ($45 before rebate)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=85625&vpn=100%2DB1%2D0500%2DKR&manufacture=eVGA&promoid=1282

Samsung 840 250gb SSD ($190)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=77211&vpn=MZ%2D7TD250BW&manufacture=Samsung%20Memory%20%26%20Storage&promoid=1282

DVD-burner ($17)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=60344&vpn=SH%2D222AB%2FBEBE%2DOEM&manufacture=Samsung

Total: $563

Now I've gone over your budget here, but with a caveat: I'm going to tell you how to take the price down. Your best options for making things cheaper are as follows: drop to an a8-6600k (save $25). Get 2x2gb RAM (save ~$30). Get a 500gb or 1TB hard Seagate Barracuda HDD or a 128gb SSD instead of a 250gb SSD (save $70-125). Go without a DVD-burner ($17). Do all of those at once and you can drop the price down as far as roughly $365.

This should be serious overkill for what you need. but it'll be a good computer that'll last for light use for atleast 5 years. Maybe possibly throw in a aftermarket cooling solution, but I don't know enough about those to suggest the best price/performance cooler.
