This includes the OS(preferably windows 7) but excludes monitor, mouse, and keyboard(Already have).

I would like to play games such as rust, dayZ, and then other games like portal 2, CSGO.

This would help me greatly, I have been searching on newegg, tiger direct, amazon, best buy, eBay, any other affordable website, and even walmart. Please help me find a decent pc for my limited budget.

But if you were to do a self build i think this would be a great option:

I haven't chosen fans or small things such as thermal compound. Also, I couldn't find a cheap win 7 copy on part picker so here:
Overall it should add up to $500 give or take $10!!!
