Basically this is what I'm looking at right now:

I was wondering if any of you guys here would be able to find some parts around the internet ( newegg? ibuypower PCs, cybertron?) I'm not sure about all the things you need to build on, so thats why I need help.

Basically if you could make decent low-budget gaming PC around the price of the one with the provided link.

(Btw, I don't have an operating system, so that'd have to be included with the stuff, preferably Windows 7.)

Sorry for the budget thing:

Less than $500 pretty much. And Pezcore's system looks pretty solid.

Is that processor better than the quad-core from the other one?

Also, will going from 8gb to 4gb cause a big difference? (The Asus to Pezcore's build)
