Help Building a Gaming PC?

Okay. So please someome help me and DON'T LINK ME TO ANY VIDEOS OR THREADS! Please give me a straight answer.

So, I want to build a gaming PC soon and I need help!

Right now I'm using a laptop which is bad for gaming! I want an improvement!

My laptop specs:
Intel Core i7 Q720 @ 1.6GHZ
Nvidia GeForce Gt240M
1366x768
Lenovo Ideapad Y550
4GB RAM
Win7 Ultimate

So can someone make me a build which can run Watch Dogs, Arma 3, Black Ops 2, and Battlefield 4 all on Medium to High @ 40FPS?

It should include the following requirements, but you can make adjustments to suit my needs and run those games how l asked:
8GB RAM
Intel and Nvidia **ONLY** PLEASE. NO QUESTIONS ABOUT IT!
2+GB GDDR5
A case, monitor, and OS (so everything!)

So please help! Oh, and my budget is $1337. No joke.

But, the OS and monitor don't have to be in the budget. Just make sure the other stuff is equal to or less then my budget!


Please help, and thank you!
