Question Help

Hey all, I am trying to build a decent gaming computer for around 500$ to 700$ I can go a little higher if need be, I got to looking at hardware and I am totally lost! I was hoping someone could do a "tech build" for me.

I'd recommend building off something like this:

CPU, Mobo, Memory, and Hard Drive $388.00
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

With that as your base you should have enough left over for a PSU, Video Card, Optical Drive, and a cheap case.
