Hello there, I am very very new to computer and i've been wanting to build a gaming computer on a budget. I know little to nothing about computers right now, but i'm very interested. I would greatly appreciate if you guys could help me get a general build for a computer.
I have roughly $700 dollars to play with and would like to get the best bang for my buck. I would love to play Starcraft 2 and League of Legends at the highest resolution possible and also be able to multitask.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and would love to read your responses.

Not the most demanding games, and if you want to get into it, you're gonna want to upgrade soon.

Something like that. Not the best build around, sure someone will come around and do a better one if you wait, but it would be sufficient (except the PSU which is overkill)

Okay here is what I would go with:

Just add a kit of ram and your good to go. Or you could replace the CPU and the MOBO and go amd. Which I wouldn't recommend.

What are Facts? Facts are facts because someone told you they are!

What is truth? Truth is what someone tells you is truth!

What is Government? Government is the very definition of Tyranny and evil this is why our founders were not stupid and wrote the Constitution!

There are 2 kinds of people I really admire in this world. Ones that say they are going to do something and do it! And ones that do something, and then say they have done it!

I just have never had luck with their processors. But the phenom II for $100 is a great choice or an FX 4100. But again never had luck with them. I would be fast though to recommend Radeon or Nvidia depending on what you want to spend.

Yeah, I don't really know anything about computer parts or whats the best bang for my buck. All i'm concerned is about being able to play games on high settings with good FPS and multi tasking. i know its a lot to ask for, for only 700 dollars.

You could always go with an AMD build and overclock it(my recommendation) but since you claim your kind of new to computers I've just not bothered with it.

EDIT: Amazingly enough when I looked at ram prices the best option for 2 x 4GB ram faster than 1333mhz was the one listed above at $51.91, I'd suggest you look for other sources to buy ram since I've seen DDR3 1600mhz 2 x 4GB packages as low as say $37(a couple months back).
