Default Buying/Building a new desktop

Hello guys! As you can see from the title, I plan to get a new desktop. It's more of a gaming desktop, but I'll be surfing the net about 20% of the time. I'm a complete idiot at computer software, so I'll naturally need extra guidance (Sorry :/). I don't plan to run games like Crysis or Battlefield, but I do want my computer to be able to run games like Team Fortress 2, Terraria, and other steam games. Help would be greatly appreciated!
