Hello all,

I am attempting to look for a build that can basically allow me to expand from my laptop gaming. I play mostly league and a little WoW. I just bought the DayZ SA and that is when my laptop decides to start crapping out, so time to upgrade. I would like this computer to last me 2-4 years with games that will be coming out. I usually play all my shooters on Xbox so a game really has to stick out for me to want to play it. Can anyone give me a build that will last for a while and be able to play games well without low FPS? Cheaper the better of course.

Note* I have keyboard/mouse/monitor. May need an OS but not 100% sure on that yet. I would also like to upgrade to 2 monitors eventually so keep that in mind. (Would like it to play the new battlefront when it comes out)

Thanks in Advance

The build on a budget like this changes DRASTICALLY between needing an OS and not needing one. Find that out and I'll throw you up a good one :)

Most likely will need one but maybe could you make suggestions on having one and not?

Here's one WITH Windows 7 for $575. Decent build. 260x gets respectable performance, look at some benchmarks.

This build will max out BF3 at 1080p with 40 fps, and thats on Ultra with FXAA and 16x AF, could back down some graphics settings to easily get 60+ Check out this benchmark:

Again, don't expect blazing performance, but this will easily out perform a PS4 or XBone. Let me know what you think!
