Hello azenace;
Some gaming is bit vague and could use some clarification.
It makes a big difference on the GPU choice. Movies, web surfing and general purpose office tasks are happy with a good integrated video chip.
3D gaming on a 1920x1080 will take a pretty large bump up in the graphics card and power supply.

Hi Batuchka thnx for the quick i reply will look into.
Sorry WR2 i wasn't clear, i would probably run games like maple story or league of legends nothing serious like fallout or battlefield.

what do you guys think of this combo

plus batuchka hard drive and cdrom drive.

i was looking into this combo after seeing the cpu batuchka recommended and was wondering if i were to get this combo what would be a decent video card within $100 or less that would run those kinds of games and use the psu that came with the case?

Please feel free to post a dif build. Im very interested in what others have in mind and would like to explore my options. thank you all for your input.

Ahh then id would go with a gtx 450{ gtx 460 for maple is major
overkill} , and a better cpu , or better other components
