Help $900 Gaming PC Build

Ok so I've taken the community's advice to build my own PC, however I kinda don't know in anyway how I should go about it, so I'm wondering can anyone here make a $900 or lower Budget PC build for me that can run all current games at max with a good frame rate, then I'll order all the parts and try to put it together.

Example games such as, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite

Any help or feedback would be appreciated.

Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: 3 weeks

Budget Range: 700-900$ After Rebates/After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Movies, Working

Are you buying a monitor: Maybe


Parts to Upgrade: All New Computer

Do you need to buy OS: Depends if I need an OS to install a different OS because I'm in college and I can buy a disk for 20$

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, amazon, (any trusted, well known site)

Location: Gary, Indiana Lake County, USA

Parts Preferences: I trust Intel and Nvidia most, but I'm not too specific as long as all the parts are able to work together cohesively

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: I have a Flatscreen HDTV but I'm not sure whether or not to upgrade to a monitor, it is however a 1080p television

Additional Comments:Nothing special, just able to run the latest games at max setting or at least high

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Need a new hobby, and a good computer just for down the road, been gaming for years but have been told that pc gaming is 10 times better so I want to get into it.

  1. Do you need a monitor, OS, mouse, or keyboard? What settings do you want to play on? You have to mention these things.
  2. You'll get much better responses if you post in the format found in this sticky:
