Hello I am going to buy a $900 Gaming PC and I need your help. I have no clue when it comes to building this stuff but love to play games on my crappy laptop and want to be able to play everything I can on my console. So as I already said the price range is $900. What I need beside the basic stuff is the Monitor, OS ( Windows 7), Keyboard, and a Wireless Card. I plan on getting this sometime this week probably on Cyber Monday. Just some more info, the keyboard and case don't need to be anything expensive.

Thank you for whoever decides to help me out I appreciate it.

Thank you so much for the reply, what kind of games can this run and at what settings. I would like to play Fifa 14, BF4, COD: Ghosts, and stuff like that. Is this PC capable?

for better frame rated you have to use a higher end amd or nvidia card. 770/780 line or the 79xx line from amd.

Thanks for all this, just last question on the part picker it says there is a compatibility error, is this a problem at all?

if you want the front of the case to have newer usb 3.0 port then the case has to be changed. if not your just going to plug the case usb header into the usb 2.0 ports on the mb.
