Hey guys, I am attempting to figure out what components I should use when I build my first PC, and I am looking for some suggestions. Here is some info:

Approximate Purchase Date: Boxing Day/Week

Budget Range: $700 (Canadian)

System Usage: Gaming, internet browsing.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.ca

Location: Winnipeg, MB

Parts Preferences: Maybe AMD, because of the competitive pricing.

Overclocking: If it saves me money, then yes.

SLI or Crossfire: No, maybe down the road.

Your Monitor Resolution: Looking to buy 1080p.

Additional Comments: I would like to run next gen games like battlefield 4, preferably at high settings with 60 fps.

It's $650 because $50 MIR which I completely ignore. I suggest waiting a bit for those holiday sales to kick in. You'll be able to get a better build or spend less money.

This is good, and I have a couple in my signature that are pretty good as well.
This is almost the same specs as the 750 build
