So I've just finished scouring the internet for the last few days and this is what I came up with . Keep in mind I'm looking for a decent rig that is around $500 and able to run most games, maxed out on about 1280x720 res.
This is my first time attempting to build a rig and I'm hoping I picked out everything that is needed ( except the hdd and burner, which I already have )
