Hello everybody recently I have been wanting to get into pc gaming and I am saving up money to build a pc. The problem is I don't know what parts are good for what games I would like to play. I would like to play games like Battlefield 4, Skyrim, and DayZ. So I was wondering if someone would be so kind as to give me a link to a built pc so I can get an idea of what parts to get. Also could you include the monitor for said pc in the list. The budget doesn't matter as I am still saving up but please nothing to outrageously expensive. Also could you tell me when I might have to upgrade whatever pc lists you give me. Sorry if what I am saying is to confusing or just too demanding as this is my first time asking on this site. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

The first build is capible of running bf4 on 60fps ultra it is the build im using and im very happy with it. BF4 utilizes all 8 cores of the 8350 and more games are gonna start doing that and the 8350 matches and beats the i5 in newer games and is a bit cheaper and with the cooler you can overclock a bit. The 270x is great value for money and can run bf4 on ultra 60fps 1080p and with mantle fps will improve when it comes out. The second build is much better for playing dayz and will get similer performence in bf4. the i5 4670k is about the same in bf4 as 8350 but is better for dayz as it has better single core performence. if you have the money you should make the gpu a 280x.
