So i am new to all this so please bare with me. I am looking to build a good Gaming PC on a budget. I will be running games like Diablo 3, Crysis, Skyrim, and so on. My budget for now is $300-$450 because moneys tight at the moment.I will definitely be looking to eventually upgrade parts,(so a build that is easily up-gradable would be nice) I decided to build rather than buy pre-built because i know it gives you better performance at a lower cost and i wanted a PC i can keep working on / upgrading over time.

I honestly know nothing about gaming comps or comp parts in general so i do not exactly know what parts i need or whats best for what i want. Any advice at all on this situation would be very helpful!

Also sites and places to find the best deals for things i need would be appreciated

things i have: mouse, keyboard, 32' SANYO Led TV Monitor with computer inputs.(would like to use for screen),

Do you need an OS included in the budget?
