Hello everyone,

I just started looking into building a desktop so very new to this. Looking to build a desktop that would run most of the new games on high resolution for cheapest price (~$500-$600). I am not familiar with a lot of brands and specs so it would be nice if someone could at least start me up with a list. I don't need to include mouse, keyboard, operating system, or monitor. Also am wondering if I would have to get anything extra if I wanted to project the screen on the tablet if that's even possible. Thanks for the help!

This should get you some really solid performance!

(And for others questioning, the 4gb Powercolor 380 is the same price as the other 380s and is less than any 960, so I went for it)
