I need a PC under 500 dollars.
I want to build it, but don't know where to go for gaming.
I want to play BF3/BF4 at a good fps, Minecraft (easy) and GTA V when it comes out. I will mostly use this PC for next gen gaming, but I dont need 1080p Perfect 60 fps BF4 on max settings.

No os, or any extra stuff. Just the main parts, but I need a monitor.

AMD A10 6800k, 8gb 2133 RAM (the faster the RAM, the better the fps, since its an APU), 1TB 7200rpm, $50 mobo, 400w PSU, Cougar Spike MicroATX case, and then get a $100-$120 monitor

Just a little over.You could be right on the budget with the next monitor,but i don't know if staples sells to private homes or that it's just for businesses,

You could add more ram later when having the budget for it.

Since i'm using a m-atx motherboard it migt be that the next case (in two colors) is a nice pick too,
i like it actually better than the rosewill galaxy case.

Just look at some reviews about the parts and see if it's worth your money.
I think it's the best and most balanced for your budget.Otherwise you should,imo, save more money and come back later.

That's a tall order for $500. Not that this is the place for it but a PS4 might be your only way into what you want for sub $500 especially with a monitor. An apu is out of the question for bf4 on anything but the lowest settings. I think you'd be okay with this build at $500 but you'd get no monitor, maybe use your TV?
This build will easily out do both the previous ones but at a cost of no monitor. Sorry I'm using mobile so I can only paste the link
