Gaming PC build

Hey im looking for help with a gaming pc build, originally i wanted to get a gaming laptop but iv been convinced it would work out alot cheaper to just build my own Pc.

Iv never built a pc before so i dont have a clue where to start.

1. What is your budget?
800 or 900 euro

2. What will be the main purpose of the computer? Gaming mainly, games i play would be sc2, skyrim, CoD, probly battlefield.. im not bothered wheather the graphics can go as high as ultra or not

3. Do you need a copy of Windows? yes

4. Can you use any parts from an old computer? No i only have a 2 year old laptop atm

5. Do you need a monitor? yes

5a. If yes, what size do you need. 19' or 20' i dont really mind

6. Do you need any of these peripherals? il need a keyboard,

7. Are you willing to try overclocking? no, dont really know what that is

8. How can you pay? Bank Transfer/Laser

9. When are you purchasing? asap

10. If you need help building it, where are you based? dublin 15, carpenterstown.

wouldnt mind a cool looking case either, any feedback is greatly appreciated
