Thats all i ahve right now i need a Optical Drive(optional ill steal one from my old PC)
and a Power supply
and maby a CPU cooler idk i wont be overclocking most likely.

I play League BF3(BF4) TF2 Wow(i dont care for great graphics just smooth game play for wow)

What i really want to do it get my price to around 800 i am willing to drop the CPU and Motherboard down ( i really dont even know if this is compatable) but i just want a PC i can use for 3-5 years befor needing to upgrade to much.

P.S. do i need a operating system if so put some cheep as WIndows in there for me preferably 7

TY and Feed back is very nice even if its just one or 2 things.

Edit: My Monitor is kinda shity but i can always up grade later its like
1440x900 (im at school doing this cause im bored so idk the exact udate whenn i get home)

Edit: I have chosen my answer but I'm still open to feed back on his answer or my old build all will be read and taken into consideration

Your PC has great specs, I have no issues btu I can tell you that all the games you want to play apart from BF4 will run ultra settings without breaking a sweat.

So I highly recommend to buy the PC!

I think for 800 you can do better honestly. I'll see what I can come up with and edit this post.

:edit: So after adding things up, I realized your build was over 800 dollars, so I changed things up to fit under you wanted budget.

A little over budget, but I didn't really want to cut any more off the build.

You skip out on a "k" series Cpu, but that allows you to save some money on an H87 motherboard. Still a great performer though, just no real overclocking options. Great Ram for the price, standard 1tb HDD. If you can spring for a little bit more money, I'd rather get the Rosewill Hive 750w PSU for about 12 dollars more, but the Corsair CX600w will work. The Rosewill is just a little better higher quality, and modular as well. Upped the video card to a 760 since there was room in the budget for it, even though I could have saved money with a much lesser Gpu since your resolution for gaming is lower than 1080p. However, it's very easy to replace the monitor, and this card will run games at 1080p very well. Stuck with a good budget matx case for the build as well.

If you happen to live near a Microcenter, could probably rework things to get you the original build you had listed for under 800 dollars.
