Approximate Purchase Date: April

Budget Range: $1300-1400 (for desktop) $200-250 (for monitor)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Videos, Web surfing

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Do you need to buy OS: Yes, preferably 8.1

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, amazon.com

Location: Allentown, Pennsylvania, United States of America

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: I would like to have a quite, fast, gaming computer that will last a good couple years.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current desktop can't run any of the games that I want too (upcoming titanfall, payday 2, call of duty, and battlefield 4). Also, I would like this build to last 2-5 years (preferably higher).

If I were you I'd take $200 off the PC and put it towards a monitor, no point in a decent settings if you have a cheap monitor to show it on. For the monitor I have saved $100 on this so you can get a nice 1440p! This will do Ultra BF4 at 1440p.

Will that make games run slower? If I did that would it then be cheap settings and good monitor? Right now I currently own a ASUS VH236H.

Just an FYI, I forgot the damn OS, although that is in your budget.
