I was looking for a PC build up for around $700,
I already have two monitors, but I need everything else. I was looking for an Intel based PC, also a strong graphics chip. This PC will be mostly used for gaming, hope you can help

Are you looking to build your own or buy one already put together ?
$700 for an Intel based pc is going to be tough because Intel cpus are not cheap like AMD and while Intel is prefered because they are better with gaming you can consider an AMD if your wanting to stay with that budget amount. I'm not saying that it's not possible but you may have to build your own to get what you want.

As you can see when you look through these computers the one thing missing is a strong video card and that's mostly because of the Intel cpu and the cost of it. Plus your paying for it to be put together .If your wanting to buy one of these and upgrade the video card later then you could do that.

Sorry I did not specify , I was going to build it and And I am willing to go up to $800 if I have to just to get the intel based. I have had bad experiences in the past with AMD.

I assume that's $800 including case? What kind of optical drive do you want to have with it?

Yes with a case, and I am not that worried about the optical drive, so it dose not have to fancy.

There's nothing wrong with wanting certian parts and to specify an aIntel based build you have top be prepared for a higher priced build and as you can see by the build that bradum put together for you that it adds up quickly.
If the computer is to be used for gaming then you do want the Intel cpu and you want to get the most video card that you can possibly afford. With gaming that's the single most impoortant part. So you want to sit down and go through your finances and come up with your max budget.
You should also run a build simulation through part picker as that site will show you the lowaest prices available for the parts that you want.

If you had visited the system section of the forums you would have seen that they all use it there. It is a very handy site as it will actually shop for the lowest prices for you and can save you a ton of time.
