Okay hello guys, My name is ryan and I am hoping that you guys can help me build a budget gaming pc, my budget is around 600-800, I can try to stretch it to 850 if possible
Approximate Purchase Date: after you all, the experts suggest me a good build

Budget Range:600-800 can try to stretch to 850 if its too tight

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, I guess everyday task like facebook twitter youtube and stuff

Parts Not Required:Keyboard, Mouse, Headphones, Os, I got this graphic card I purchased quite long ago, wondering if its still suitable to use if i plan on using it to game o.o
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT
Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip type: GeForce 9400 GT
DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC
Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0641&SUBSYS_236E1682&REV_A1
Display Memory: 1741 MB
Dedicated Memory: 1009 MB
Shared Memory: 731 MB

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I really have no idea :(  I seldom purchase stuff online, any is fine as long as I get the parts I purchased, hopefully the shipping fees wont be too expensive, I live in Singapore the lion city by the way, roar LOL

Country: Singapore!!!

Parts Preferences: I believe since you guys are the experts helping me, you guys should have the rights to make your own choice on which parts to use, since I am asking you guys for assistance, I dont want to limit you guys, any parts which you feel is a great addition to my gaming pc family would be perfect. (as long as its within budget LOLOLOL)

Overclocking: How do i do it?of course its good if I can get to save cost but is there any risk? like what will happen if I overclock, hahaha sorry, I asking for spoon feed again :( 

SLI or Crossfire: SORRY :(  i really have no clue what is that, such sophisticated words LOL

Monitor Resolution: any will do, not too small though, just good quality gaming experience will do, dont have to be the best

Additional Comments: apart from all the things i listed at the parts not required section, I need everything, :(  up till now i still do not know what a power supply is, i feel so ashamed, hope you guys can help me

For those that don't know the abbreviation, that's Singapore Dollar, which is around 0.8 of a U.S. Dollar, so we're looking at something that's kind of the equivalent of $500-$650 with about $50 in room to crack that ceiling in a pinch.

However, someone with better knowledge of buying PCs online in Singapore will have to speak up first as I just don't know what you can get there and for what price. I know secondhand that the big places like Sim Lim Square are great places to get electronics, but I hardly know from here what those prices would be. With that budget, I'd be looking for something in the neighborhood of an FX-6300 with a no-nonsense motherboard, an HD 7790, 2x4 GB RAM, and one of the entry line Corsairs.
