Gaming Build

let me fix my description, I just need a good gaming computer for $700 and I would prefer it would have an Intel i-5 processor. All other components you can decide what to be.

  2. You are asking for too much to stay under 700, the build above is more reasonable.
  3. the operating system does not have to be included in the build, sorry that I didn't mention that.

    Could you swap the i3 out for an i5? At microcenter, you can get an 3.3 GHz i5 for $140, unopened, compleatly new.
  5. You certainly can if you have a microcenter nearby they have great combo deals. I got an i7 ($325 and $225 after rebate) and MSI mobo ($175 before rebate and $115 after rebate)
