Hello, I am very new to this and would like some experienced with this decision making process. Thank you for any responses and your time.

Budget: $700-$800


I need everything from all the computer components along with an OS, monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Use of computer: gaming and surfing


I have literally no idea where to start all I know is that I would like this system to play the latest gaming titles as well as upcoming gaming titles. I am on a budget right now but will have money to upgrade in the future.

Professional and thought out responses and builds would be greatly appreciated.

The 650Ti is not a card I would recommend to be honest: Especially at $950.

The only real question I have with CheesyHotDogPuff's build would be regarding the case. How sufficient is this case in terms of its size capacity and terms of overheating issues?

Then I'd add a cheap keyboard and mouse for now and you're good to go.
