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

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.

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.
