I second the last comment, you wont get a feasible gaming rig for 400 bucks.
If you could provide with newegg links that will be great.

Whoa, edit and quote buttons are a must

For 400 you wont have an i5. At best with the other components you'll have an i3. Still plenty fast. For gaming you want more GPU, but since you're on such a tight budget you wont really have a good GPU either.

Here is a.....build lol.

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116775

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157335

RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104339

GPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130869

PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139027

HDD:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152226

Optical:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151256

402

Or you can go this route

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130680

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130680

With the rest I linked minus the GT630. The AMD setup would perform better.
