I have an i3-2105 system I built that's, according to Passmark, 3-4x faster than yours but I don't know how good a gaming machine it can be. I used it for a few months while building my i5 system which I'm using now.
See what you can get for $500 as you'll probably find a better system. If not talk to me.
Oh thanks so much for the advice, I have a Logitech mouse and keyboard that will work on most of the computer, So i guess i can check off the list. Also my Window 8.1 License key and disc are still working properly. Also i love your 3-4x faster Pc, That been my dream to have a faster Pc, but i was eligible to use this All in one touchsmart computer that i found that was a laptop alike for 6 years.. Now I just found out about building a computer, but i'm scared that it might cost a lot than buying a new computer, and my only budget right now is $500 or maybe 600, but still unsure about what to build or which option is better. Although you have help me a lot already by the awesome info's you giving. Ty.
