Hey, I've started getting into PC gaming and I would like to get a new budget gaming pc preferably under $800. I would like it to be able to at least run most games at medium-high. Now I've been asking all my friends for help, I want to make sure if this is a good gaming rig for the price.

Also the PC will be located in my room, but I want a wired connection. The router is located downstairs in the living room.

Thanks, I just would like to discuss if what I have is good or not. I would like a better insight, I already have general knowledge and I would like to know more.

Gaming rig with the usual web surfing etc or are you going to be doing heavy video editing or other things in that field?

If a case is not important to you then dump that case and get
Rosewill Dual Fans ATX Mid Tower Computer Case FB-04 $30 or something in that ballpark there are cases out there for $20 look horrible but does it matter $10 savings there, Change your kingston black ram to Kingston Hyper X Blue $41.97 on Amazon for 2GB x2 (<---type that in amazon should pop up) or for $6 more than that black ram you can get 2GBx4 Hyper x blue oh yeah.

AMD FX -4130 3.8Ghz Processor Amazon $94.99 no need for 6 cores in gaming let alone 4 but its a black edition meaning you could unlock 6 cores OH YEAH!

Thats about $40 saved take that and get the Asus M5A97 R 2.0 (sometimes pops under Evo also at Amazon $99.99 way better mobo with UEFI bios (GREAT for first time builder GUI interface and super easy to use plus it has an unlock core feature and turbo boost to OC your cpu safely Gotta love that

Get that Sapphire Radeon 7870 from Amazon too the 2 free games is through AMD search around amazon somewhere on there they say you can get emailed the codes but if not just contact AMD support and theyll give you the codes. I think if you register your card with AMD (after downloading drivers its auto dont quote me but pretty sure) Also Amazon has on their site $20 rebate forms.

Youre golden tell me what you think :D
