I agree about talking to your dad as well.
This is the performance of the build linked by rationale

Probably won't get above 30FPS on ultra.

Then you have a super bad chipset for your mobo, and when paired with the 8320 will be trouble...

It's probably one of the MSI ones to.

Then you have a cheap 400w PSU which who knows if the thing will last more than one week.

That's not just problems with the one chosen above , That's all budget prebuilts

It's my opinion and I stand by it when I say it, you get more of a "warranty" building your own computer with quality parts than you do buying some junky prebuilt one.

I'll give a shot looking for a better one but it's doubtful, give me a few minutes.

Alright took 30 minutes of researching to find out....

Lol...yea I tried to build you a custom one on Ibuypower's site. I made an FX6300/r9 270 one for $778 but you'd have to put an operating system on it yourself; they have the worst list of parts ever...

That build Rationale showed is the best cheap one on newegg. I tried bestbuy and found this Dell one. It's at least energy star certified so I hope that means the PSU is good lol. It has a very slightly worse GPU but has a better motherboard and an i5-4440 CPU that uses less power so hopefully less stress on your system.

Then I thought...why not try Tigerdirect. They have some decent prebuilts usually....well

It's an 4300 cpu with an r9 270...Always better to have a great GPU and so-so CPU than have the reverse. It even has a 500w psu so should be better than the norm.
I'd personally take this build as it fits your budget perfectly and gives you the best graphics card possible in a $700 prebuilt

thanks for the answer. i would convince my dad to let me build my own but he said if we bought it from a retailer, he would pay for it, and if i built it, i would have to. I'll still search to see if i can find anything better and will update if i do.

Hmm, that's a weird deal with your dad about the computer, I guess he is like most parents and worried something goes wrong and you lose $700 :p 
(it's not really like that at all!)

But hey, at least you get a free computer out of it! Enjoy it :)
