Solved

Trying to build a gaming computer, need advice.

I would like to keep this between $700-$800 as I'm about to start college. Also I plan to get a different power supply, but I'm figuring out what all i need first.

    It just needs a monitor and the other peripherals.

    If you want to connect the Pc wirelessly to the internet , you need to buy a network adapter, and if you're planning on overclocking the CPU, get a decent CPU cooler
