    This is a very good build, however a monitor, keyboard, mouse would go over your budget. Unless you save up a little more....
  2. here http://pcpartpicker.com/p/180QQ over budget slightly but will play at medium-high settings on the 720p monitor included

    the i3 build above would in theory beat up this one gaming... however, this one is rolling with a 1080p monitor (that i3 build has too much gpu power for a 720p monitor, wasted power)... this also is under your budget.
