I just quickly checked a price on an i7 and the most popular one I found is $288.99.
Intell Core i7-920
So if the total computer was going to be $750 that would over 1/3 of it just for the CPU and you still have to buy everything else.
Here's another Radeon Card that got very good ratings, a little more expensive, but if you're spending around $700 and you will be playing games, this isn't too bad of a a price, in my opinion: Radeon HD 4870
