ok well i have 650$ MAX budget and im thinking my best bet is to build instead of buy. So now i dont know what to buy considering the last time i built was in 07 and i really dont know what im doing. So im coming to you guys for help. I would want to be playing on closest to max settings on starcraft 2 and be streaming on like medium or low is fine. I need an operating system and keyboard also i was think about this:

I have an add blocker, and am not about to turn it off, so if you don't mind can you please copy and paste the build onto the forum?
