I want to have a max budget of 700$ nothing too fancy but enough to play some games when i feel like it.

Anyone want to help me out with this? It's a bit overwhelming when seeing what would be optimum for price and efficiency.

I friend recommended that site but I dont know where to start...

Your friend could've atleast recommended you some parts to give you an idea where to start rather thansimply sending you to a site like pcpartpicker.

http://www.logicalincrements.com/

This isn't a go all end all site, but you can use as a reference and more information.

It's all good chris. Ok I'm starting off there and yes I'll need an OS. Windows 7 is probably what I'll go for.
