Can you include the OS too, preferably Windows 7

If you include our high tax rates, no this budget will not be large enough. For only the tower plus the OS it's doable. No peripherals, though. I also highly recommend Windows 8.1. It's not too different from Windows 7 and offers performance improvements along with being the retail package so you can transfer between computers.

An SSD or an aftermarket CPU Cooler would be a very welcome upgrade to this. The PSU isn't fantastic...but it will do. Power supplies are insanely priced here.

Thank you for the build and alright I might consider 8.1 then. However, this build would be able to support AAA titles on lower settings right? I'm talking like 60 fps+.

A 290 would do 60+ FPS on high or better for most games.

I was skeptical at first of Windows 8.1, but it's really not bad. The only difference is that the Start Menu actually opens up a full screen display of "App Buttons". Windows 8 original had this as the primary screen, but the .1 revision made the Desktop that everyone's used to as the primary screen.

Windows 10 is a free upgrade which has the start menu
