Hey, guys. I'm new to this forum. Anyway, I've been looking for a gaming pc for a while now, and my searches have been.. Unsuccessful. All the pcs are very out dated and all the websites where you pick your own parts don't really have any way to contact them. I've literally been banging my head against a wall it's that annoying. The games I'd want to run are:
ARMA 3
DayZ
BF4 (possibly)
7 days to die
Chivalry
Skyrim
And more, obviously. I have around £500 budget, but for a desktop I need a monitor, keyboard etc so I put some money a side. I could get a more expensive laptop because I wouldn't need all that stuff. Can anyone help? I'll be very grateful.

Thanks
