Hello, I need help

Lately I've made the decision too build a gaming pc, I need help on which parts too buy my budget is in the region of $800-900 I would like to play games like skyrim, Starcraft, minecraft, bf4(when it comes out) and games like that, would I be able to get a pc like that for the money I would be willing to pay? I would also like to install mods.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Yeah you're probably looking at a i5-4430 and GTX 760. Try something like this:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($107.86 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($86.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($255.66 @ Newegg)
    Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg)

    If you're willing to go slightly over budget:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Newegg)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($35.98 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: Asus Z87-C ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($145.66 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($86.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($255.66 @ Newegg)
    Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg)
    Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($71.30 @ Newegg)
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ Newegg)
    Total: $958.55
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    The difference between the two builds is that one has an unlocked multiplier for overclocking which would be a significant speed boost, and the other doesn't.
