I'd say your base should be a phenom II x2 or x3 and a 5770. Check my sig rig out, it came out to be less than 600. I highly recommend the M3A770DE mobo, its so amazing for the price (60$). With your budget and the M3a770DE, you could easily get a 460 if you wanted to.

1. antec 300 is better
2. hyper 212+ is way better than the artic cooling one
3. athlons suck go with phenom ii dual or triple core and try to unlock
4. His makes the crappiest video cards ever. I can testify to that. Go with MSI or Sapphire.
uhh yah the rant is over
Edit: is it just me or did the price of the 212 shoot up?
