***Need help building a gaming PC with a STRICT $400 budget including shipping etc.***

As the titles states, I have exactly $400 dollars I can spend on a gaming PC, I don't need a monitor or a mouse / keyboard / OS. I don't expect to run anything on high at 1080p, but I'd love the best possible build for my price. Thank you.

    You could add ram later when you would have the budget for it.
