Could someone give me a good build list for a gaming PC for under 700$ ?

I want to build a PC for under 700, I understand that it wont be a supercomputer but that's OK since I only want to play games like LoL and Minecraft. Please leave a build list with the prices and website.(Canadian only please!).

Thank you!!!

    EDIT:

    ILikeGames, a 500W budget type power supply would not be enough for a GTX660.

    Canadian prices are more or less the same as US prices, just look for the same components on Newegg Canada.

    Not for under $700, but for under $800, you can build the best budget gaming PC:

    Yahoo answers will only allow up to 10 links, so I have to leave out the not so important components. Just copy paste in the search field on Newegg to find them, I will give the full name but no link for those.

    BEST BUDGET GAMING DESKTOP PC BUILD FOR THE MONEY (under $750.00USD for the tower only)

    Monitor, keyboard and mouse can add from $175 to over $500, depending on size and model you want.

    All prices are in $USD and in the USA, current as of December 2012 and they might be slightly different one way or the other by now.

    Also, some shipping charges may apply to some of the items.

    Add your state sales tax if you reside in NJ, CA or TN - that's where Newegg has warehouses.

    Look for similar parts on Amazon, Tiger Direct, etc if you want to avoid paying Uncle Sam.

    You can download ccleaner for free here: http://bit.ly/1Bk5V5C

    First open CCleaner

    Go to the Cleaner tab and you will be confronted by a very confusing lineup of checkboxes.

    To make this brief, below is my recommended setup:

    Under internet explorer check temporary internet files, cookies, and last download location. Most users don't really need this stuff. keep history and bookmarks unchecked, history is a maybe, but you don't want to lose bookmarked sites. You can normally leave Windows Explorer, System, and Advanced alone.

    Run CCleaner and it will start deleting files.

    afterward it will present you with a list of the files deleted, you really don't need to go through it as it will be several pages long.

    The registry cleaner is recommended for slightly more advanced users. Use it after uninstalling programs as they will often leave behind incorrect registry entries.

    If you decide to run Registry cleaner then review the items detected and always back up the registry (I keep a folder aside for this)

    The Tools tab lets you uninstall programs and set startup programs. Why do you need this if Windows has all of these features? Especially with Vista Home Ed. The windows defender software explorer( startup programs) doesn't pick up some entries (however software explorer is easier to use).

    Using CCleaner to uninstall programs and then check for leftover registry entries takes less time.

    Under Options you can determine how CCleaner cleans your files. I leave this alone.

    My PC is a gaming PC with a GTX 680, i7 3770k, custom water-cooling, ROG mobo and it has a 650 watt PSU. People think that they need a super high wattage PSU, when in reality, the GTX 600 series are extremely power efficient and don't need a lot of wattage.
