I need a new computer. Mine is outdated. I would like a new gaming computer that will run most games. Have about $750 to spend. Any help? What builds and where?

you looking for a prebuilt or a DIY build?

DIY is always better especially at lower budgets. you can reuse some parts from the old system if they are still ok to get more budget for the cpu/gpu which are expensive part.

prebuilts tend to be very unbalanced. a "gaming" pc will throw an i7 in the machine yet use the integrated graphics. or will have like a $50 very low end card. they are also very hard to upgrade later as they tend to be custom designs that don't lend themselves very well to upgrading.

This is what I would do, with room to upgrade (the case my not be the prettiest but it does the job and helps to reduce cost to get a better GPU, same with the SSD /for the OS+programs/ + HDD /for games and user data/ combo selected)

If you need to keep it down to $750 you can remove the Crucial SSD.

Later on you should add a fan at the rear of the case to get better airflow.

Now, if you can spend a bit more then I would go with the next, and forget about mechanical drives:
