Hello, I'm pretty new to PC gaming, and I wanted to know if there was a low budget gaming rig that i could use to play games like Skyrim and Sonic Generations (Single-Player games, planning to move on to games like Planetside 2 and Black Ops 2 when i get some more money).

If not a gaming rig, would it just be more worth it to buy a prebuilt PC from Newegg or Tiger Direct or something?

May not be a lot, but budget i had right now is like $400.

Just my 2 cents, but I think you might want to go with a Trinity APU- it offers good gaming performance with the IGP, and later on you can crossfire with a Radeon HD 7000 series for even better performance.

CPU - $120

Mobo - $57

Case - $33

PSU - $43

RAM - $47

HDD - $50

Total of $350, leaving you enough to go buy black ops :) 

Hope I helped
