Looking for a PC that can play The Witcher 3 and other demanding games.

I recently bought The Witcher 3 on steam after seeing all the positive feedback on it. Found out my laptop can't handle it at all. (I know, I know, what a surprise). I have mostly been a console gamer but I have always considered building my own PC, so I thought why not.

I don't have the craziest budget but is it possible to build a PC (including a monitor and OS) for a maximum of $1200 that can play The Witcher 3 on high res with around 60FPS?

I live in Denmark, and plan on buying the parts here.

Hope you guys can help!
