hi , i need a gaming build under $600 . i would like an intel build or an amd build that could run mw3, sims 3 with fraps and run max payne 3.
i dont care about the case having LEDs but it would be nice , the case does need very good air flow .this computer will be used mostly for gaming and video editing

i already have cd drive ,speakers,mouse but if you know of a good gaming mouse/key board let me know for the future

hows this for a monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and the monitor is not included in the budget

thank you in advanced .it may take me a few hours to answer you .

Although it is a bit above budget, this is a killer rig for that money. You can get a 7850 if you cannot stretch your budget, but that video card is killer, it can play Crysis 3 on Very High at around 30-40 fps.
