I would like a PC that I'll build within the next couple of weeks. My goal is to record gameplay for the following games:

Dishonored
Saints Row: The Third
Grand Theft Auto IV
Bioshock Infinite
Just Cause 2
Kerbal Space Program
Surgeon Simulator 2013
Minecraft

Suggestions?
Thanks in Advance.

Nope! I finally got the money to get a $750 gaming PC. 186.99 will go to games, an the rest will go to food.

Well, what quality are you going for? Recording high end gameplay takes resources that 750 bucks isn't going to buy, but if you don't mind half screen under FRAPs (or 720p) recording then that's fine. It appears the trend of recording gameplay is a big thing right now.

I can record 720p. It'll render faster.

Also, I didn't include a DVD drive because they are getting rather pointless these days. If you need one, any cheap SATA DVDRW will work. Think Asus has one for 17 bucks.
