An i7 can eat up most of your budget, depending on the exact model. To give you an idea, my i7, the 4770K, is a 3.5Ghz chip, and cost $350 when purchased new.
As far as motherboards I recommend Gigabyte, Asus, or MSI. I find that Asus has some really good high end boards. But if you only need a board and no special features, I say go with MSI. It all varies depending on your needs.

Considering what you are going to use the computer for, $500 seemed very optimistic, even with a pre-existing case.
For work I recently built three computers with 4.0 Ghz i7's, a modest MSI mobo, 275 GB SSD, 16 GB RAM, a case, and a 500 watt corsair PSU. No GPU. Total price per machine? $611. Those machines did not need a GPU, if they did I expect the cost would have been $750-$900.

The machines I built are meant to test electronic hardware using (mostly) proprietary software. One of the non-custom softwares is National Instruments LabView.
