The link to the build I posted costs 970 USD and with Mantle you should be able to get 60+ FPS in Battlefield 4 on ultra and the 280x has 3gb of ram which should last you at least a year or two. If you buy an OS you should be able to buy a 1080p 144hz monitor.

For one he wrote "1000 dollar PC build."
However I did change euros to dollars and he has about 1300 USD.
