I know this is a bit impossible but I play really low end games. For example, League of legends, starcraft and TF2. Im used to low graphics but i want high fps to improve my gaming.I also want this computer to multi task really well. Make a cart for me all in one website? Please include the OS and optical drive in the budget given. Challenge accepted? GO!

This will do the trick.
From what I read in the reviews, this APU can max out SC2.
Plays most games at around medium-high settings and old games on max.
If you have the extra $15, I'd spring up and get the A10-6800k APU which would be better.
