I pretty new to PC gaming but I want to start. I prefer AMD products and for OS I will probably go with Linux. Thanks for the help guys :)
For purely gaming on a $350 budget......this is the best option.
$350 is to low for a gameing capable pc $400+ at a push try your luck on a secondhand pc on ebay for $350 your best options are a xbox/ps3 or a secondhand pc.
This will play most games at 1080p at low-medium settings at 40-60FPS.

+1. I got my first custom-built computer a year ago, secondhand. It was $225 and played games well with a GPU upgrade.
My old comp specs(before upgrade):
CPU: Intel C2D e8600 @ 3.33ghz
RAM: 2x2GB DDR2 OCZ 1066(i forget)mhz
GPU: GTS 250
After I upgraded the GTS 250 to an HD 7850, I could play Bioshock Infinite, TF2, Portal 1&2, and other games no problem. The specs, today, would be really, really outdated, but I'm just trying to point out that a secondhand PC should still be very capable.
