Advice on new gaming rig build

After a gaming rig to play battlefield 4 and assassins creed black flag on ultra. Would also like it to be able to play the new star wars battlefront when it's released if possible but i don't think specs for that have been released yet. This pc will just be solely for gaming.
Don't need monitor or keyboard and mouse and would like the computer to be as cheap as possible but will be willing to spend around £400-£700 Am completely new to pc gaming so please as much help as possible would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
