can somebody recommend me to a good pc build for 550 dollars

im looking for a pc that can handle the next generation games like the elder scrolls online and bf4 with decent graphics. I cant spend over 550. im new to pc gaming so I need some suggestions. I cant exceed 550 because I have to buy a monitor and a mouse and keybored so im looking at like 700 for everything.

    This board has a known issue with no heatsinks on the mofset and fires happen because of it.

    Get a 970 chipset ASUS board. Also, I would recommend the fx6300 for sure as the 965 is going on 6 years old.

    The case and DVD drive are in-store only. I would recommend an NZXT case as their cheaper (source 210) cases are VERY good quality.

    The other builds are ok if you have the cash to cover mail in rebates, my build keeps the $550 hard budget in mind
