Hi guys, im planning to buy a new pc to play mostly arma 2 dayz and arma stand alone. Maybe pes or fifa as well. I would also like my new pc to run new games in the next 2-3 years. What are the best components in my case? Im mostly interested in cpu and gpu and i would like to stick to 8gb ram.

This is the great build for the price; if you plan on overclocking get the K version of the i5 though although I doubt you want to since it'll do fine in games for the next 3+ years.

It looks way better than i was expecting. What about amd 6 core and 8core cpus? How are they comparing to i5 4570 and 4670? I play an online game while using team speak or skype, sometimes both. When im off the game i browse the web, listen to music, watch youtube and im planning to do some music mixing but not at the moment. You can have a rough idea of what i do and what i need.
Thanks alot though, this one looks great, especially the gpu is something i was just hoping to get within that price range

When comparing FX-8320 to i5-4570/4670, you won't really notice the difference while gaming as most games are in need for GPU power than the CPU power. Outside of gaming, FX-8320 will do better in rendering and such processes that requires more cores. On the other hand, i5-4570/4670 will perform better when just doing regular stuff like watching YouTube and such that does not require extra cores. In another word, if you're mostly going to game, then I would go with the cheaper option, but if you care about outside performance or video rendering speed then you should know which one to get. However, that is not to say that FX-8320 is worse than an i3 when doing stuff other than gaming, it's not as great as i5, but still does a great job.

Here an the FX-8320 version for whichever one you want.

Thanks idontunderstand. I might acutally push my budget up to £750-800 but i would need a wireless card, because im planning to use wi-fi plus im going to need a decent keyboard and mouse. So the question is if there would be a room for some upgrades? Make the performamce noticable? Im happy with the fx 8core one and 8gb ram.

I don't recommend any other changes to the build unless you want to overclock or prepare for future dual GPU setup.
Treat yourself with some nice mechanical keyboard and a gaming mouse with nice ergonomic.

Here is the build with wireless adapter

Update: Added a SSD
