Hey guys this is my first time making a computer and i was looking for some help. I would like a computer with a intel i5 processor or something equivalent to it. I would like at least 8gm of ram and i am looking to use this computer for some gaming, but nothing with heavy graphics so the graphics card doesn't have to be that great. I also like multitasking and leaving my programs like chrome, itunes, word, power point, a couple chatting programs like skype or oovoo open while i'm gaming and i would like if there was no lag while i'm running these program and while switching in between these program. I have no preference in between intel and amd and my budget is around $600-$700 please tell me if this isn't possible i'm looking for advice. Thanks in advance =)
