I'm open to both buying or building a new pc. I would like the pc to be able to play games like league of legends and fallout new vegas on high, or medium if thats asking for too much and the newer games on either medium or low. All help is appreciated. Btw forget about the monitor, mouse, keyboard, dont add it to the 500. Everything else I need.
