I Need some help coming up with a new system. I have a 850-900 Budget, and I want the computer to be used for gaming and some video recording of gaming.

I need everything except a mouse and headset,

Parts Needed:
-Case
-Monitor
-Keyboard(probably gonna get the logitech g110 so factor that price in)
-CPU
-Mobo
-GPU
-Ram(probably gonna get 8 gigs of g.skill ripjaws)
-HDD(Western Digital Black 1TB probably)
-CDD(prob just somehting cheapish since they are not used much anymore)
-Power Supply
-OS(Getting Windows 7 obviously, but factor that into price)

I think thats it.

The computer i wanna be able to play games for the future for a little while, and still have it upgradeable. Best bang for buck, and doesnt matter if intel or AMD CPU, I would prefere nvidia cards though not radeon. I am not worried about overclocking, or dual carding.

Sites to be used basically Newegg.com and Amazon.com stuff like that.

Thank you for any and all help in advance!

Honestly, it's going to be pretty difficult since you're buying a monitor, keyboard, and OS - that's more than 20% of your budget even with a budget monitor.

Here's what I'd pick: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/o1eh

I used the same graphics card and MOBO as TheBigTroll but changed a few other things... went with an Ivy Bridge i3, a bigger Caviar Blue HDD, a 600W power supply. If I didn't have to spend the money on the monitor and keyboard, I would've put in a bigger PSU and a full ATX board along with maybe a slightly more expensive case. I managed to keep you just barely under budget at $888.

This comes in under budget and should do what ypu need it to.
Not sure if you needed a mouse too i included one so if not 40$ less or to spend up on something.

gaming with fx is a pretty terrible choice if you ask me

That's more a matter of personal opinion then actual fact since lots of people game with FX and love it. Im pretty sure OP just wants suggestions for a build that will do what he wants.

Indeed I do, and im loving the feedback, I will double check with the OS might have one laying around or one of my buddies might have an unused key. Keyboard I can get pretty cheap, monitor is unforunate but needed. Mouse is not needed at this time.

And Please by all means show me some builds over budgest in the 1000-1200 range. I may be able to just save up for a little longer, or might end up with some cash for christmas who knows

So I would like to see both if possible.

if a pentium g630 matches a fx 8150 in games, they are terrible at games

Not worried about solid states, or overclocking, just need some decent mid range stuff to get me running

For $1200, this is what I'd get: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ocer

Edit - Sorry, no monitor or keyboard on that build because I forgot that you needed them. If you dropped the video card down to the 7870 then you could apply the savings to a monitor like the one TheBigTroll recommended.
