I need a parts list for a family computer for under $700 usd... it needs to be able to run basic games at high fps, be capable of high speed browsing and general use as well as store media such as pictures, videos, and music... also streaming youtube on 1080p without interruption... GO!!!

What kind of "basic games"?

And no PC will solve bad internet (unless wireless adapter issue only), so consider your internet connection itself too for YouTube.

minecraft, facebook games, light steam games, things like that, nothing more resource intensive than 2GBs required

This is ultimately similar to Allan_M_Systems' build.

He's usually right, though, so just get his.

This will do it all, do it well, and if you want to start playing more complicated games it will do so without pause.

Bad monitor choice, pricey RAM, not good SSD, bad PSU (it has bad 12V ripple), random CPU cooler...
