Hi. What's your budget, monitor resolution and preferred websites for parts? You don't need a 750W PSU.

I meant to ask what your current monitor's native resolution i.e. 1920 x 1080, etc. is? Does this budget include the OS too?

If you don't plan to upgrade to a monitor with higher resolution, this build below would be a good at your current resolution. Do you plan to do that in the near future? Feel free to make changes as you'd like like drop to a dual-core, a different case, Windows 8, etc.
