You'll need $500 minimum. And even then, you won't be able to build one for gaming that's gonna last long, or perform all too well, without being modified soon after.

You're better off saving up till you have more to spend on it from the get-go.

Tera is quite demanding if you want it to look better than a ps2 game (like Hollow)

I'm just saiyan. PC gaming is more of a hobby and you get what you pay for.
