Hey I've been a console gamer for years, but now i have decided to move onto pc gaming ,since I would be making a new pc i have no idea what parts to buy, and your help would be appreciated, if i can't afford what i want for the price i might be able to entend my budget a little
Using my 1080p LED 32" HDTV
Budget $600-$750
Parts i already have:o S, mouse ,keyboard
Some specs i require 8GB Ram, Disc drive, 500gb HDD that's fast and efficient, upgradeable, video card with hdmi input

No problem! Got the parts list up and ready :) 

And actually I'm glad you mentioned you don't need the OS, I forgot to integrate that in my parts list, one less thing I don't have to worry about :lol: 

I really wanted to integrate an SSD in this rig, but I wanted to squeeze in the beefiest GPU possible.
