I have already scoured the internet for something useful, but there are too many distracting pictures of cats. I am brand new to computer building. Purchase date: Within the next year or so. Budget: $650 or Under, give or take a bit. More about : gaming desktop 650 casper1973 January 9, 2013 8:55:35 PM I just put this together for someone else. Comes in at $650 but doesn't include an Operating System so technically over budget.
