Hello all, i am new to pc building and im currently looking for a computer that can run H1Z1/battlefield/runescape (i know a rock could run runescape lol) i dont necessarily need it to be 60fps on ultra im fine with medium settings and high fps.

I need windows 8 but i have a monitor and keyboard/mouse.

Prefer the color scheme to black with blue or green or red, i dont care to much wether its amd or intel just whatever would be the best. Thank you in advance.

It will go a little over your budget if you decide not to use the MIRS, but I think you will be fine.

This CPU is not an unlocked CPU, so it cannot overclock. The stock cooler will work just fine.

If you want to overclock on an Intel CPU, you need to get a "K" series processor.
