Hey everybody, I could really use some help picking out parts to fit into my budget. I would really appreciate your time/effort. Here's some more detailed info:

Budget Range: $800 after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mostly gaming with some internet browsing

Parts Not Required: Have an old 500gb seagate hd but not sure it works and I would prefer a newer/larger hd if possible. I also have a keyboard and mouse along with a monitor

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg/Amazon but I have a microcenter by me as well if that matters

Country: United States, Minnesota

Parts Preferences: I want a full tower for sure and preferably an Nvidia video card if possible. I would also like the OEM version of Windows 7

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution:Have a 1920 x 1080 monitor

Additional Comments: I don't really care about any fancy aesthetics. Just want as much performance as I can get with my tight budget. Thanks again for your help!

A goodish build for your budget, but could be quite a bit better with a bit extra dosh

Thanks for the build Aspire. I just found 8 gigs of ram so I don't need that either. What if my budget is $900? Think I could throw the extra $100 down if the parts are that much better and it lasts me longer. I've been looking at Intel CPU's as well. Is there a big difference?

With a $900 budget, you could get a EVGA GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card, much better than a 750 TI
