I have been searching for a gaming PC for a while now, and I think I have found a decent pre built one tht is within my budget. I would like to be able to run as many games as possible. (lowest settings are ok) Including some newer titles. It is on amazon.ca. CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA390 with AMD FX-4100 CPU, 8GB DDR3, AMD HD7750 1GB, 2TB HDD, 24x DVD+-RW and Win 8 64-Bit (Blue/Black). Could anyone let me know what the best it could run or how good it is for a $500-$700 pre-built gaming PC?

As far as pre-builds go, no one on here would suggest them.
Would you consider building your own? You can get A LOT better that way. Even if its only from a quality perspective.

I am 15 so i dont really know how to build one or what parts are needed but i think my local best buy puts it together for you if you give them the parts. Do you know of a good build/combonation of parts for $500 - $700?

I heard that windows 8 isnt compatible with some games. Should I go with Windows 7 or is it fine?

There is always a way to get them working. Either way, you will be happy with Windows 8.

Does the monitor matter? Or can I just get a cheap one?

Depends on if you want HD resolution or not, if you do want it, get at least a 1920x1080 monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate and a 5ms response time.
