Can you build a gaming machine for 700$ with a minimum of a 760?

I want to build a htpc but I need to include a gtx 760 minimum. It can't have a amd gpu. I need a gtx to stream to shield

I need
Case- fractal 304
Ram-
CPU-
Gpu- gtx 760- 299$
Psu-
Mobo- must be a itx board
OS- windows

Budget 700$ - 299$ for gpu = 400 left

Why would you need a 4GB card for a HTPC? I assume you're going to be putting it on a 1080P TV?

Would not recommend that. Your ratios are way out of proportion. You'd end up getting a sub $200 CPU.

The case you requested is not on the list. I cut some corners, and it's still $802. The problem isn't making a $700 build; the problem is making it with an i5 and the 760.

If nothing else, this is a starting point for you to tinker with.

Edit: I read the post wrong, I thought you needed an Intel CPU. My bad.

I would say get a 7950 on sale and that should give you enough breathing room for an i5 or something. It will be better than the 760 once you overclock it just a bit.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.
