What type of games are wanting to play? Strategy, FPS, Indie, etc. It helps to know what you're into so the parts can be picked, as Strategy games relies heavily on a CPU, so does MMO type games. Indie games can be played on a toaster, FPS mostly needs a more beefier graphics card.

Your budget is $700, that's going to be rather hard considering you're trying to budget a monitor into that.
If you have a TV with HDMI, or a pc port, you could use that until you get more money for a display.

Edit: To save costs and put money into what matters, you can drop the audio card as well, onboard audio is fine until you want to spend more and upgrade, unless you're anal about audio over graphical power


Well I want to play things like Skyrim, Fallout, etc. maybe ESO if I'm interested.

I have a case already and if dropping the dound card would give me more money, then so be it.

Yes I realize the $700 is a bit tight but this is my first build

Can you get by with using your TV until you can later buy a monitor?

So it would be $700 for strictly computer components, cpu,mb, gpu, psu, ram, hd, optical? If so you could make a fairly decent build with $700 just for that.

Also, pick up a $10 mouse and keyboard from the dollar store until you can afford better also. You want to try to maximize the more experience parts and not allow small things like mouse/keyboard to get in a way of a budget.

Edit: Otherwords, you don't want to spend $60 on a mouse/keyboard and later, want to swap out our gpu when you could've got that gpu in the beginning, its easier to unplug and trash a keyboard than it is to swap out a gpu and resell the old one.

I see gotcha. Also how quickly do pc parts become obsolete?

That depends on the parts in question and what you consider obsolete. You can still play most games on something like a Q6600 and a 4870, so long as you don't mind lower settings.

obsolete the game is noticable frame rate drops, video card can't handle playing on high-med settings, etc.
