This is my first desktop computer. For this build i need everything. I have a monitor and windows 7. But i need everything that you need to make the pc. Also, something most people dont consider on here is the need for networking. My parents wont let me run a ethernet cable through the house and I think i will need a internet card. I want to be able to play battlefield 4 on at least medium. I prefer newegg or tigerdirect. Thanks in advance to all you technical people.

The following is what i currently have picked out.

CPU: Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell 3.0GHz LGA 1150 54W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646G3220 $70

It all comes out to about 480 after rebates. If anyone has any suggestions to bring the price down, feel free to tell me. I would like to spend about 30 dollars on a basic keyboard as well.
Thanks!

Just wondering if I could save a little bit and get the wireless card by not getting the other cpu cooler? Doesnt it come with one?
