help with 1st gaming pc build

Can anyone recommend a good gaming pc build for under 700. Im trying to build a gaming pc that can play games like battlefield 4 and future games but it should also handle emulators good. It is also going to be used to play hd blu ray movies. It is going to be hooked up to my flat screen.

Some specs to consider

Ps2 emulator requirements:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 3.2 GHz or better OR i3/i5/i7 @ 2,8 GHz or better OR AMD Phenom II @ 3,2 GHz or better
GPU: 8800gt or better (for Direct3D10 support)

Wii emulator requirements:
Intel i5 Sandy or Ivy Bridge CPUs or higher (i7).

Dreamcast emulator requirements:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP/64/Turion at 2 GHz or Intel Pentium 4 at 2.6 GHz or equivalent
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti or ATi Radeon 8500

THank you all.
