Completely casual gamer here looking to be able to run games like bioshock infinite at a medium-high setting and a pc that will last me a long time (4-5 years)

I have a 600-700 dollar budget to spend on the entire pc including monitor and keyboard,

I have nearly zero knowledge of computers and how to build them, so i'm planning to use

the 50$ assembly here

I can only get parts from tigerdirect, canadacomputers, basically the only major computer parts retailers in my living area. Shipping costs a lot!

I could also buy a pre-built system from this site:

Are any of these setups any good?

Thank you for any responses/input in advance!

It say from $50,so you might want to follow up on that,but really, building a pc isn't difficult.
Pcgate don't have the new stuff,so i'm skipping that for you.
