This will be my first Build ever. I don't know much about computers and what's good and what's not, so I need help.

My budget is around $650 AUS, I'd prefer it to be as cheap as possible. It needs to be able to run Photoshop, Video Editing Programs, and games like Minecraft,Sims and maybe CoD with ease on high.

I'm not sure if a $650 computer can do all this, but that's why I'm asking you guys.

Do you need an OS?

So this could run everything I'm asking for? And yes I would need an OS.

It could, but it doesn't come with an OS.
