I just got my taxes back and would like my first gaming pc. Everywhere I go tells me to build my own. So could someone give me a build.

Max budget $620 before rebates
Looking to purchase this week, maybe tomorrow
I dont need a operating system or Display. I will use my 720p Display.
speakers, keyboard and mouse isn't needed either.

Im looking to running game like LOL and Dark Souls 2.

This one is definitely upgradeable and has a stronger GPU than Graphiicz's build.
