I need a gaming computer that is under this budget. I've looked at other threads, and some of the parts are discontinued. I need some parts that are updated. Thanks to anyone who can help me.

Try this out, $427 out the door. It's not the best but it's a solid low end contender.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Pentium G850 2.9GHz Dual-Core Processor ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($64.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card ($111.97 @ Newegg)
Case: Antec One ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $426.93
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Edit: For another $9 you could double your RAM to 8gb. The HDD is only 250gb but it's a 7200RPM SATA 6gb/s.

Yeah, I would want it, but I've had ArmA 2 for a long time, and running 10 fps on low quality(yeah, i don't like it either), and can this run ArmA on medium/high?
