I want a GAMING pc.


Approximate Purchase Date: Near Future

Budget Range:$600

System Usage from Most to Least Important: I will be playing a lot of WoW League of Legends, but mostly Final Fantasy 14.

Are you buying a monitor: Nope.

This build is about $30 over budget before rebates, but after, its right on $600. It has a better GPU, and in my mind a better CPU as well.
