Then you wouldn't need much at all.

What is your budget? When do you plan on buying?

No budget, I'll plan on getting a paper round or someway of making money.
Jobs round the house as well. :S

I believe by budget he meant what is your expectations on the price? 400$ 500$ ect? That way it gives them a range on what to pick from when looking at parts.

Well considering he said once he get's a job, that means he's not ready for a build yet. If you ask for a build too soon, parts go out of stock/deactivated/updated/price changes etc, and that is why you should ask for a build when you are ready to buy.

About 350 for somewhat of a decent set up. but if you plan on playing games later or doing graphic design you will need a fast GPU and a good one of them are somewhere in the region of 150

A nice GPU isn't really needed for graphic design; more along the lines of CAD and modeling.
