looking to build great quality gaming pc (first time build PLEASE HELP)

Ok everyone, I really need help here. I'm wanting to build a computer in a $1200 USD budget for gaming that can play BF4 on Ultra settings and maintain a good 60fps. The kicker is, is that I'm starting up a twitch.tv channel as well, so I'm going to be doing a lot of livestreaming, so I need a build where quality is key. I've never built a computer before, cause I've always been a console gamer, but I'm wanting to expand to PC, and as I stated before, I'm going to be using it to livestream games at the same time, so I need something that's going to be able to stream, and play BF4 on Ultra holding a steady 55-60fps at the same time...my question is, would building be the better way to go, or buying a pre-built computer be best? Also I'm really liking the idea of a 120GB SSD, so factor that in as well. PLEASE HELP!

    --- BF4 on Ultra settings and maintain a good 60fps ---
    If you meant at 1920x1080, you'd need a GTX 770 or 280x at a minimum. Even better, GTX 780 or R9 290 or GTX 780 Ti or GTX 290x.

  2. If you are streaming and playing you will usually get better performance with an AMD 8 core

    But first off read the thread about how to ask for advice . We need to know what you need
  3. I'm sorry about that, like I said, I'm totally new to this, so it's a bit overwhelming. Really I don't know how to answer other than what I originally wrote. I don't need anything like monitors or anything like that, I'm just asking about the tower itself. I don't know if that was what you were looking for, again I'm sorry.
