Hello Tom's Hardware users, I am looking into building a budget gaming PC. I have a budget around $750 including a keyboard, 1080p monitor, and OS. I am not sure wether I need the monitor right now (the one I have now is a 1600x900 resolution so the monitor could be put on hold) I have been looking online at builds and have found a couple that may meet what I need but I don't know how well they perform because I am new to knowing how well certain parts work together and such. I have compiled a list of PCs below and I could use your opinions to tell me what I could change, improve, or tell me if I am getting my money's worth.

Also, if you could fit in a good keyboard or monitor, that would be greatly appreciated!

$781 PC (No OS, keyboard, monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2pTDP
$733 PC (No OS, keyboard, monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2pT8v
$792 PC (No keyboard or monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2pox6
$796 PC (No keyboard or monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2pkng
$593 PC (No OS, keyboard, or monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2lToN
$620 PC (No keyboard or monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HHJa
$741 PC (No keyboard or monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/24HaL
$880 PC (No monitor): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/34acB

Apologies for the long list, but those are the PCs I have gathered information on and I have heard very few things on them. I should mention I would like to be able for a "beginners PC" to play Minecraft, TF2, Garry's Mod, DayZ (Mod or Standalone), and some relatively new games that can play on 1080p or 1600x900 resolution at high settings with framerate 40+. Please tell me what I can change or add to be able to meet my budget of around $750.

If I do build a PC, I will need a keyboard no matter what because I don't have a keyboard for any type of PC. Thank you!

Hey buddy, your selection of $733 is quite good. If you are a gamer, then i will suggest you a 8GB ddr3 ram instead of 4GB ddr3 ram for future gen games like battlefield 4, watch dogs etc. For graphic card i would recommend you this graphic card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It is cheaper than it and it is good ( not much as GTX660 ).
from your savings, you can get this gaming keyboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You can download windows 7 from torrent.
8gb ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
expect from these things, everything is awesome
Your total budget including keyboard is $714.88
And as you said, you have a monitor. So for an OS, download from torrent
HOPE I HELPED
