What is the best gaming pc for under 1300 dollars?

Does anyone think they could come up with an idea for me for gaming? I mainly play bf3 tf2 portal 2 sims and soon bf4. I need to be able to max these games out while staying in my budget.

  1. Please list what you need for a Pc setup. Monitor, OS, keyboard/mouse(we'll need to allow some money left over for those), etc.
  2. oh sorry i forgot to metion i dont need a monitor keyboard or mouse. i just need the pc and an os. sorry for bad spelling
  3. Are you going to OC the CPU?, what display are you running?
  4. I don't plan on overclocking and i will probably be using a 1920 x 1080 display.

    This should be a real nice gamer, you could upgrade a couple thing if you wanted as it came in at around 1100 but as it is, it ought to handle most everything you throw at it...

    I don't know when you looked at it but I changed the MB to a better one, it brought the price up to ~$1100, but it is much better now, I really did not like the other and this one is worth the extra cost...hope it rocks for you!!
  8. Sorry but I picked the wrong graphics card, this is the exact same card with a much better cooler on it for $10 more, well worth it.
    If you are going to use these part numbers this one is correct, everything else is the same, just the graphics card is changed....
    Sorry about that, my mistake.
