    you don't need OS? I included one anyways. If you really don't need one, make sure you haven't used the one you have.

    This build will be perfect for you needs. With a massive 240GB SSD, you can store all your steam games on there :) It can be overclocked and it has an excellent gpu that offers great bang for buck. Should max out all your steam games, if not it will run them on high.
