I'm looking to buy a gaming rig for about $600 - $700.

I do not need any mice, monitors ect. No OS is needed either.

It needs to be able to run next gen game on high settings.

Thanks in advance for all that help!

AMD rig:
CPU: FX-6300
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P

Intel rig:
CPU: i3-4330
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3

Common:
RAM: G.Skill Value F3-1600C11D-8GNT or F3-1600C11D-8GNS (the cheaper one, they have equal performance)
PSU: AeroCool Templarius Imperator 550W 80 Plus Bronze (actually, I recommend you buying the cheapest 550 or moreW one with 80plus bronze, this one is in my country, and will even change some days later)
GPU: the cheapest GTX 770 or R9 280X you can find.

All this hardware: aprox. 565€- 775$- 480 pounds.
The AMD rig is a little bit cheaper and if you can find the GPU for less than 250 pounds it's very near your limit, but if you need a case there is a problem.
Do you have it? Also, you can try searching how much do that components cost where you live. If you can't afford them, notify me and I will try to change something.

Sorry to say but I do not have a case and also I checked the parts out and they all combined went over budget.

Will you be playing at 1080p? If so, you will need a 770/R9 280X to play games like BF4 at high settings (unless by high you mean medium-high settings, becouse most games have high and very high/ultra settings)

That's the cheapest one I can make with my experience capable of playing everything at high settings at 1080p. Unfortunately, it costs £509.12

If you don't want to spend that amount of money, you should change the GPU to a R9 270X, which will allow you to play every pre-2015 game at high details. It's better to put image quality to very high and antialiasing to 2x instead of quality to high and aa to 4x.

It came to £413 not £500 so was there anything missing?

No, the £500 rig is in the first link I put, the second is the budget one. If you don't mind spending just a little more, I recommend using the first PSU, as it has more watts, so it won't be running at max capacity, which ends in a more silent computer and more stable, too.
