Default Building For The First Time

Hello everyone, I really just got into computer gaming and learning about computers, pretty much a noob. I am starting from scratch by decidding to build my own computer. Basically all I want is to be able to run COD 4 and any games under that. The thing is im pretty young so I definately dont have mooney, I'm on a $10 a week vudget plus the change I find on the ground at school and stuff. I am not looking for anything crazy, just the lowest costing stuff I can get and still be able to run cod4. This is the list that I have made. If anyway has any information about something that is wrong with this list or how to reduce the price in anyway i would love the help. Thank you.

Go with Invisible build

But get CPU instead because it cost the same

If you want to play COD4 then you should get at least 8600GT. Anything less than 8600GT would run COD4 on low setting
