A Powerful Quad Core Gaming Desktop in a nice case...
The i5-750 Gamer's Desktop
My Second Choice for a Case
The Acer 24" LED/LCD Monitor
Around $1,200 w/o Monitor
+$300 For Quality 24" LED Monitor by ACER
+$60 For better looking Case..

It's easy to make money building computers (dependant on the scale), you've just got to cut down on the right things. Go for one of those really tacky looking cheap gaming cases, non-branded RAM, budget mATX motherboard and stick with a stock cooler unless you've mentioned overclocking or exceptional cooling performance. Don't bother touching the PSU, it'll just haunt you in 6 months.
Remember to make a big deal out of the little things.

it's blindingly bright, and washes out colors...until your drop brightness to under 50 and contrast to around 30-40.
