Question 600$ pc build

Well sense its getting near christmas and im in highschool I decided to get a new desktop, but unfortunately i cant get one that costs more than 600 and thats pushing it! I just need a good solid computer that can play the "not so amazing graphics" games to start out with (minecraft, mw2, TF2, ect.) Im new to computer gameing world but i know at least some of the basics like what a good and bad processor is and stuff like that but im clueless when it comes to how to put a computer together! So to cut to the chace, It would be cool if someone had a link ibuypowervor something like that where its already put togather! Thanks for any help yall can give me!

Welcome to the forum..

Heres your best option
Newegg.com - iBUYPOWER Gamer EXTREME 923i Desktop PC Intel Core i5 2320(3.00GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
629.99 with freee shipping!

600 bucks is a tough spot in the buy or build. Building will get you the best parts, so really think about doing it.

Seconded on the building idea. It's not nearly as daunting as it seems, rather enjoyable really. There is a ton of step by step guides to building your own pc including videos.

Just get an hd and your good. You could build it for under 400 if you wanted.
