Hey guys! This is my first post in the forums, so sorry if this is in the wrong place. Anyway, as the title states, I am building a $400 PC.

1. I do need an OS
2. I do not need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, ect.
3. I will not be doing any overclocking
4. It has to play Minecraft, TF2, and Garry's Mod

Thanks in advance!

Here. The integrated gpu would do better with two sticks of high speed ram, but this your budget is very low. Also, if you don't need the optical drive, that saves you $15.
It will play those games on med to high settings.
