Building a new PC! Need Help

Hello, so i am planning on building a new PC this december because my current PC is just terrible! so my budget is anything $900 or cheaper. i want this PC to be for Gaming purposes and some programming (mainly gaming). i play games like Skyrim, LoL, DotA 2, NFS and Battlefield 4. some of these games dont run well on my PC so i want to make a new one this december. it would be nice if the system was relatively quiet, but if not it's fine.

Anyway thank you for helping. i really appreciate it :)

    I just whipped that up, don't follow that to the dot, research, ask tech stores, and do more research. There are probably many more suggestions that are better than mine but I just wanted to put it out there. Enjoy, and good luck on your PC!

  3. thanks for the replys :D

    oh and @realchaos is a core i5 good enough? or would it be better to get a core i7 or does it not really affect the overall gaming experience?
  4. i5 is the best gaming cpu on the market right now. realchaos has a great build for that price. i prefer these 2 cases though both would still be within budget.
