i am selling my xbox one and investing in a gaming pc 700 gbp budget

it will be my first pc i have used for gaming and would like some future proofing to it
i dont mind picking up a monitor at a later date and waiting
or even buying a few bits later im just the type of person that wants it to have little restriction

as a benchmark i would want it to run bf4 on high well if possible
not to bright when it comes to building computers
have a budget of 700 pounds (gbp)
i think the main things are the gpu/cpu
so if it goes a little over budget for these things i dont mind

appreciate any help given

btw i do need an os but again exclude it if it will et me a better pc substantially

    thanks for the reply

    do you think its better to save up more casah for a gtx 770
    or will the r9 be fine for ultra settings and maybe streaming also?

    +1.
    My personal take would be to take the £10 hit and step up to the FX8320 and I'd fiddle with the budget in other places (like the case+motherboard) to get the budget under £700, but it's pretty much spot on.

    just for piece of mind my friend is trying to convince me to get this

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/GRAPHICS-PRE-INSTALLED-WINDOWS-PREMIUM-Processor/dp/B00FQMAEXA/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1386624313&sr=8-9&keywords=new+r9+280x+3gb+graphics+gaming+pc+pre-installed

    please tell me what your showing me will be better than this
    i will spend the extra 10 pounds if it is better
  5. Stick with the build they gave you earlier in the thread. The computer on amazon has a vastly slower Cpu. Also there are no reviews and it probably uses junky components.
