Under $700 build help

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: $600-700 before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing, movies

Are you buying a monitor: No, will be using a 32" TV

Parts to Upgrade: Need everything but speakers, mouse and OS

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg/ Amazon

Location: US

Parts Preferences: Need a cherry red mx keyboard. Had one a while ago when i had a gaming computer and then handed it all off to a nephew

Overclocking: If it comes with software that i can easily do it with like the AMD APU i have in the current laptop

SLI or Crossfire: more than likely not as i know nothing of it

Additional Comments: Needs a mx cherry red keyboard and an optical drive. Silent is good but not necessarily needed.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

thank you
