Some possible light gaming, will upgrade gfx card later. I saw a few Gateways. I prefer pre-built compared to ecollegepc or something

Your best bet is buying a used one on craigslist, if you don't want to build it yourself.

Save some money, build it yourself. It's really not that hard and this board will help you out with it. Look at this video series.

Also I'd look at the first one. And 3rd.

$547. That's the best I could do with the budget, if you decide to build your own.

If I had to use eCollegePC and a 650 budget, what could I get? I don't really know the difference between Intel i3 5 7 and AMD I do like that Apevia X-Dreamer4 Case. I have a 1920x1080p monitor, W8 set. Would prefer that case, along with HDMI. I'd probably spend most of my time in Minecraft or Warcraft

You can easily build a capable computer for this price by running on a smaller monitor or turning down the resolution.

Can't go wrong with the phenom.

$456.50

You would need a monitor, keyboard mouse and operating system and some headphones/speakers.

I went on that website and started doing a build...and then quickly realized that they overcharge on everything. I didn't even bother finishing. You should really stick with pcpartpicker.

For $650, this is the best I could come up with:
