I am going to be the first to suggest you build the PC yourself with custom parts. While that is an acceptable computer you can get a lot better for the price if you custom build.

I understand that this is a lot more efficient, however I have 0 confidence/knowledge and understanding when it comes to PC specs and what to look for in a gaming PC, which is why I came here asking for help

I'm afraid I will just screw everything up if I customized it

ask people in here for parts recommendation, also state your budget and they will help you. Once you get your parts done, you may ask how to put stuff together. Also read the manuals. I suggest you to build your own computer. It might be hard to put parts together but once you you do it, it looks easy and fun.

Thank you, which forum should I post under if I'm looking for help on buying parts? Are there any recent threads I can look at?

For less than $700 you could buy a pretty high end motherboard, phenom II 955 or something similar, GTX 460 or HD 6850, and pay someone a few bucks to put it together if you're not able to do it yourself.

Once again thanks everyone for all the feedback, can't believe it came so fast and helpful

As mentioned previously, I am a complete noob when it comes to computers, where would I go to have someone assemble my PC?
