This price range does not need to include windows,or a monitor,or mouse and keyboard. I will be overclocking the cpu and the graphics card. The games i will be playing is bf3, skyrim,minecraft, borderlands 2. I would like to play them on ATLEAST high settings. If theirs any other details that you need let me know. Its not a priority for it to be future proof but id like it to be able to play atleast on medium setting for a couple years. I prefer nvidia graphics but im open to amd, and only motherboard from the big 3 (msi,gigabyte,asus) i dont want the case to be more then 80 bucks. Thank you

This build allows you to run two of whatever cards you choose. I stuck in a bunch of options down below for you to play with but that SSD is a steal atm. I would get that and if it's not in your budget hold off on a storage drive and pick that up later on so you don't have to reload Windows.

Someone needs to tell the OP that MSI isn't part of the "Big 3" anymore. Asrock took over that position months ago and is gaining on Gigabyte for the #2 spot.
