Hello this is my first build and I am looking for a 400 dollar pc build that I can do school work on, and play minecraft with no lag and potentially other games. No operating system or peripherals needed. Thanks.

this build will run minecraft and other games with no problems if you over clock the cpu http://pcpartpicker.com/p/KwjrRB

closer to your budget could go with a 500w corsair psu or even 430 one but this will allow you to add a gpu down the road
