    Dude dude dude... $100 for a Windows 10 OEM? No. Just no.

    EDIT: Try this out..

    CPU Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor $196.99 @ SuperBiiz

    Motherboard MSI H110M Pro-VD Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $44.99 @ Micro Center

    Memory G.Skill Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory $29.99 @ Newegg

    Storage PNY CS1311 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $39.99 @ Amazon

    Storage Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $49.89 @ OutletPC

    Video Card XFX Radeon R9 390 8GB Double Dissipation Video Card $274.99 @ Newegg

    Case Corsair 100R ATX Mid Tower Case $39.99 @ Micro Center

    Power Supply EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply $39.99 @ Newegg

    Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts
    Total (before mail-in rebates) $776.82
    Mail-in rebates -$60.00
    Total $716.82

    I would recommend saving up a little more $ and not cheaping out on the PSU.

    I'm pretty damn sure that you can't get a R9 390 for below 300$, that $274.9 seems so small that I can't believe it.

    Why game on a computer which won't even last a year when you can buy a PS4 for $300?

    I guess I am happy with a PS4. Don't even have time to play it anyways.

    All of the PC parts that everyone commented are very good but its also preference if you want AMD or Intel, you can look online to see which one you prefer.

    I'm not going to bother giving you a list of parts since there's a shit ton of builds there already, but I will give you advice. Firstly you should really learn about each individual part your going to buy, it may seem tedious at first, but you might find a hobby out of it. Building your first PC is a great experience so I recommend just learning about the parts and making a build your self. You have to consider many things such as are you upgrading in the future? Is your case going to be big enough? Will you save money in a long run? Those are questions you have to ask yourself in order to have the best build for your self. Sure these builds that everyone suggested are great, but you might want to provide a bit more info on your situation and such. As for my final tip I recommend you look into buying used, some may be against this, but personally had a great experience with used/refurbished parts. To eliminate as much risk as possible for buying used I recommend you look into buying from a local seller from Kijiji/craigslist so you can test out the part and such. Or you can look to see if they offer warranty.
