Default Re: How would this work?

What parts do I need to buy? could you pick give me links to the stuff I need? I want to play mostly minecraft, possibly COD and GTA. Similar to the computers I linked. How could I do with a budget of 700 USD, or could I get what I need for less?

I'm probably going to buy it, I don't even know all the things I will need.

We can help you if you want to build or you can just go ahead and buy that prebuilt machine.

I'm not a huge hardware guy (as most regulars can agree with), but this seems to be a pretty comparable setup. It comes as a kit, and ships in one box. All you have to do is put all the pieces together. It's a great way to do a first build since everything you need is there. It's about $300 cheaper.
MSI Z77, Intel I5-3570K processor, 16GBs Kingston HyperX Red memory, Evga GTX650, LG 24x DVDRW, Ultra 750W PSU & Blk Gladiator Case, Cougar Orange Case fan Bundle at TigerDirect.com

It's a good jumping off point to start with. Shoot you don't have to learn how to apply thermal paste with that kit. The stock heat sink comes ready to install.

It comes with an EVGA GTX 650. That's a pretty good card. http://www.evga.com/articles/00701/

You would have no problem what so ever in running those games you listed by building with the parts kit Jmacavali suggested to you....

Once you build it and realize just how easy it is, You will kick yourself in the ass for not doing it sooner, Trust me.
