    You should have said so straight off. The GTX 680 is a decent entry-level GPU these days and should play most games well at 1080p. You'll need a license for Windows on top of what you've already got. EXACTLY which PSU do you have - we'll need the make, the model, and the approximate age.

    Welcome and good job on building a machine with that budget, especially considering the state of the PC component market :)

    You'll have to tell us the specs when it's all built.
