I need a PC that would be good for gaming. I have my monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I just need the PC. I will need a wifi adapter and I will need windows. I don't care if it is windows 7 or 8. Which ever one is better for my situation.

Slightly over budget but it was the best I could do. If you need it a little cheaper you can save $30 by getting a HD 7770 instead of a 7790.
