Hello. I haven't ever built a computer myself but I do know a lot about computers. I have been looking for a good desktop to play xplane 10 and minecraft and I figured the best way to go is to just build my own. I have a budget of $450-500. I will also need to buy the monitor and mouse/keyboard but I'm not including that in the budget. I want it to run mine craft and xplane 10 pretty good. So I need help on what to buy. Thanks
