$900 Gaming PC to play BF3 and DayZ... Help a poor newb out!

Will buy in 2 Weeks. Would love to squeeze in 8350 to make future proof, and plan on overclocking in the future with watercooling.

I would love to have a SSD... I do not need a optical drive

I have a keyboard, mouse, 7.1 Surround Headset, and monitor so everything is solid.

Thanks a ton!

  1. Couldn't really fit an SSD in there, but it is a little bit cheaper than your actual budget, so you could maybe save up to buy an SSD later on.

    The only thing that is making this over $900 is the Operating System. I am not sure if you need it or not but here you go:

    From Seladon's build, I saved you $100 bucks on the GPU. Other than that, I fit in a 64GB SSD in there for you as well as the OS.

    Probably going to go off of this build, but I have to spend $20 more because I don't have a microcenter at my house.

    Thanks!
