How about this?
CPU: i5-2500K Sandy Bridge (OCed to 4.5~4.8 Hopefully)
Amazon.com: Intel Core i5-2500K Processor with 6 MB Cache, 3.30 GHz for Socket LGA1155 - Unlocked Boxed: Electronics
RAM: PNY Optima 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model MD8192KD3-1333
Which goes for $85 - 15% - $20 rebate = $52
G.Skills 8gb (2x 4gb) at Newegg Which is $75 without rebate after coupon.
The G.Skill ones run at DDR3 1600 compared to PNY's 1333
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2 GB DDR5 DL-DVI-I/SL-DVI-D/HDMI/Dual Mini DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 100312SR
Unlock it. (I think theres a rebate or maybe its too late that brings it down to 250)

Amazon.com: ASUS P8P67 PRO <REV 3.0> LGA 1155 SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 Supported Intel P67 DDR3 2400 ATX Motherboard: ElectronicsWhich would leave you with a lot of extra $$ to spend on an ssd or something.
Also, sorry if some of the links arent working. Writings this on an iPod lol. I've seen the 2500k at amazon for 219 reguarly (depending on where its being sold from) so yeaa
