    Budget: 700$. No more. It isn't possible.
    I am new to building pcs, I have never built one before, so I am a beginner at this.
    I mostly game on computers. I would like to start livestreaming games onto websites, but my current pc doesn't have the power for it, so I am looking to build a new one!

    I am coming here for suggestions on what parts to buy, because to be honest, if I picked them myself I would screw up and pick the wrong ones or just overall buy parts that don't really work for what I need. I also do not have a copy of windows 7, so I will need one of those too.

    I would imagine I could use the 4gb of ram I currently use in this PC on my new one if that would work. I don't really use lots of hard drive space, so lots of memory isn't a priority. I just want the PC to be able to run games for the most part.

    It has basic builds with quality hardware. Find one that suits your needs and adjust the hardware to fit your budget.

    You can ask 10 people for a $xxx build, and you will get 10 different answers...and none of them may suit what you are wanting/trying to do. You asked for a guideline, and I provided one.

    Those builds also don't include the OS, tax, or shipping. So a $500 build, plus Win7 ($100), plus tax and shipping will be in the $700 range.

    Well and plus, items listed on there are out of stock. I don't know how to pick new items. I don't know what ones would be compatible. So yeah, not really helpful to me.

    Do you intend to go amd or intel?
    Do you need a case, keyboard, mouse, optical drive or are you going to reuse those items?

    It's only as helpful as the amount of effort you are wanting to expend. If you want someone to give you a list of exact parts to buy, then someone else can help you.

    I obviously wrongly assumed that as were going to build your own PC, you were also willing to expend a little effort and learn about computers along the way. If a part is out of stock, perform a little research and find a replacement. You can also post the list of parts that you decide upon and get help or guidance.

    This is exactly why I post on different forums instead of these ones, people are complete jerks. Goodbye.

    Hopefully you will get help there since you are now banned.
