So I'm getting into pc gaming and I want to build my own, but I'm afraid when building it I'll pick bad parts, or parts that aren't compatible with one another. So I'm looking for one around $600 including OS (windows 8.1, $100 for OS and $500 for pc). I also need a DVD drive/burner, just a $20 one will do. I don't usually play graphically intensifying games but I would like to play games like bioshock infinite and battle field 4 on medium setting at around 60 fps (if that's possible). Don't include monitor, keyboard, etc. I will take care of that. It would be nice of you could put the parts on pcpartpicker.com. I hope this helps. :)

Yes it can.


The graphics card is out of stock. How long does it usually take for them to be in stock again?

Usually, one or two weeks, but it depends.
