if you already have a gaming PC that your content with, then just buy a nice big hard drive and you'll be all set

if you want to save money get integrated video.

did you not look at the links?

The second link has a combo for an Athlon II X3 CPU and a gigabyte motherboard. The gigabyte motherboard doesn't have integrated video, so if you plan on not getting the video card, then make sure you get a different motherboard with integrated video.
