Hi guys... first of i'm a complete novice to computer building etc right now i have a laptop im looking to sell to get a computer ive read lots of different peoples guides and ideas on what to buy all backdated to say june or whatever.

What i'm looking for is a full gaming PC for roughly £400 i do have some wriggle room on that i would like it to be ale to run next gen games ok and most importantly DayZ standalone and it to be windows 8. Also as a side task could someone suggest a monitor that can be completely serperate from the computer so not included in the £400 intial build. Thanks so much to any replies.
