I am a complete noob when it comes to computers. I'm looking for something for gaming. Don't need a mouse,keyboard, or monitor. Looking to spend no more than $1,000. Can someone help me?

It will max out bf4 at 1080p at over 30fps 40fps will probally be your average frames per second also if you didn't see my last bit on my last answer pick up a samsung 840 EVO ssd it's 98$ and will help alot

samsung 840 EVO ssd. Is that instead of something else or just an addition to what you already have in the build? Also do you have a link for all the parts from pcpartpicker? Thank you much for your help

In addition if you want to spend the extra $98 umm yeh this link should work on my iPad so don't know if it will lol http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

Link didnt work. It doesnt have any parts selected. Thank you much for your help. How long would a build like this be good for in your opinion?
October 27, 2013 8:19:28 AM

Oh, and can this be overclocked?
October 27, 2013 8:23:27 AM

Yes,that CPU can be overclocked.

The reviews look good on it. I know nothing about computer parts so I'll have to go on that.

No problem (: Also if you have extra money I know the Msi g45 gaming motherboard is great but the one I previously stated is good aswell also with the 212 evo you can OC that 4670k to 4.2 or 4.3 ghz also feel free to change the case,ram and others as long as the ram is 8gb 2x4 gb sticks and has atleast 1600mhz though higher MHz =better.
