  1. Best answer
    You can use the $400 build in my sig as a starting point.

    Beyond that, there's a few questions
    - Do you you have a longer list of games you want to play on it?
    - will this be a pure gaming machine?
    - do you need to buy an OS
    - do you need to buy any peripherals? (mouse, keyboard, monitor, headphone/speakers)
  2. All the things quilciri mentioned should come into consideration. If you don't have an OS or peripherals, you're looking at $200 minimum spent already without even one core component in your computer. However, there are youtube videos available that show you what you need to build a budget gaming PC for $350. Make sure to look at the dating on those videos though because you might be able to do better if the videos are old.
