Building New Gaming Computer

Building a new Gaming Computer

Budget: $300-$600

Uses: Minecraft, School work (Microsoft Office programs)

Can someone please make me a list for a good Gaming and school computer? Budget is around 300-600 US dollars. I would love as much RAM as possible without going a ton over my budget.. Also can someone recommend a really good 180p HD Monitor? Thank you! :D

    I'm hoping the monitor was not part of the budget, if so it can be re-worked. Any questions let me know
