I have been trying to make a gaming computer and i think i got it down...for the most part. I will most likely be using this on a 20"- 32" TV so hdmi on motherboard is necessary. I will be playing All types of games: WOW, Battlefield 3, CSS, TF2, Skyrim, Borderlands 2. Preferably on Max settings
If anyone has ANY suggestions please feel free to respond with the modifications.

That should give you $150 which should be good enough for OS and peripherals. I've played CSS and BC2 with a crap $25 Logitech wireless keyboard and HP $10 mouse for the last few years and its done me fine so. I think $25 per thing is pretty good amount. Just my opinion though.
