I already have a monitor, speakers, mouse, keyboard and Headphones so do not comment about them. I already have Windows 7 Ultimate so OS wont be a problem. The total build should cost around $600, a litter bit lower might be better only if it is possible. No AMD Graphic cards. Would the GTX 450 be better than the GTX 650 Ti and according to the price. Core i3 or Core i5 (the first and second generation)
 
The HD 7850 is a better performer at $15 more, but I understand your preference to Nvidia. As wanderer11 said, for $600 you should be considering an i3 and GTX 660 if you wanted to use up the extra budget. Or you could stick with the original build and add a 120gb / 128gb SSD boot drive into the mix.
 
If you are trying to just build the best gaming PC you can for $600 you should do something like this:

nVidia cannot compete with AMD at this price. The 7870 will eat a 660 all day.
