Looking for a great pc that can run battlefield 3, skyrim, starcraft, and blops 2 all on ultra at over 60 fps consistently. All at under $900. If this is not possible, I can stretch my budget a little. Very confused on what i should get. PLEASE INCLUDE GOOD MONITOR IN THE PRICE.

More about : nvidia intel 900
