Hello Everyone!
I'm looking to build a good gaming PC.
One that would be able to Play Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Minecraft, GTA 4, COD Black Ops, TS3, Portal, Portal 2 and other games with a minimal to no amounts of lag. Now for my budget....I got the idea of doing chores at 10 dollars every 2 weeks. I found a nice Intel Based PC build that would work well for me, but seeing how the total would be 1,090$ (and dont forget the shipping!) Doing a simple amount of math....it would take me just about 4 years to save up enough money! (Im 13 now, i would end up just turning 17 by then) and im pretty sure other good computers would be out by then, and the one i was saving up for would be considered crap.

Anyway....could you guys help me find some decent parts to put together that would fit my budget? (And hopefully not take 4 years to save up the money 0_0)
Just remember that I would want a Intel Based PC (No AMD PCs unless i really have to!)

Thanks!

Your link is no good. I hope you will read this now, so you can cancel your order if you are getting something smaller than MT

Look below, only MT is somewhat upgradable, others are very limited



Those are optiplex 755 family, I seen optiplex name in your link (which is no good)

MT is the only one to consider, the rest are junk.

If you could find any Inspiron models, that would be better for later upgrading.
