Okay so i have a 450$ budget for a gaming pc would i be better off buying...

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=38074268...

Or build my own? If so i want a gaming pc. I don't need an OS, Moniter, Mouse, or keyboard, so for 450$ can you find the best CPU, GPU, Harddrive, Mobo, 8gb Ram 1600mhz(or higher), Case, and Psu! Thanks!

Preferably from Newegg.com thanks!

That looks like a pretty craptastic waste of $450.
What hard drive?
What PSU?
What RAM?
etc...

It depends on what type of games your going to run. The cpu is quad-core but more of the money is invested in the gpu.

Nothing should bottleneck right?

And will the PC be fairly easy to build?

No components in the pc should be bottlenecking anything.

Building any pc is easy, there are hundreds of tutorials out there that can help you. This one hepled me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea_bs5G1yYU
