Hi Nacho

This is a quick list of part for a gaming system that I searched for on newegg
they have a different system for parts in the states,anyways it is just outside your budget but can easily be inside it, as there is 16gigs of ram instead of 8gigs of ram(reduces the total by $74.99), if you wish i can email you directly the shopping list.

The list can be tweaked a bit, just spent 2 hours looking for parts for this system. this is just a pc with all the parts necessary for a gaming system , no operating system is included or monitor or anything like that.

You can get the newer 448 processor core version of the 560ti for the same price as the 384 version
