Hi I am looking to play the following games: Battlefield 4 (online) GTA V Fallout 4

I would like to be able to play at 1080 resolution. I dont really know what I could expect to get in terms of graphical settings to go with this but would like to go as high as possible withoit affecting gameplay.

I would sadly need to get an operating system in there too! I would probably be able to put mpre money into it in the future but dont want to have to save up for ages before buying!

I am based in the UK.

If you can also recommend a good value monitor (no more than £100) that would be great :)

I had to change this a bit due to a poor recommendation on my part... but it's still pretty nice!

The monitor is a really nice addition to the free sync roster. Freesync if you didnt know is monitor tech that allows the refresh rate of the screen to match the fps your graphics card is kicking out meaning gameplay is as smooth as it can get.

The 860K while not amazing gives great value for money and dx12 should be leaning less and less on the CPU anyway. That's not to say this chip isn't capable because it really is.

I love that MSI have brought out this A68 chipset as it deosn't need a bios flash like many other board may need and it's a solid performer from what I can gather about it, especially give the price of £38.

Graphics card is about as good as this budget will allow for without serious compromises elsewhere.

Case is nice, comes with two decent fans and is good quality for the price.

Please do not suggest keys from that site. Those keys are grey market and we do not support them.

Thanks for the suggestion. I could actually provide that hard drive from my old computer along with 300 gb velociraptor. Any suggestions on how I could best reinvest that £40 back into the other parts?

In my head this is the next step up but goes a fair bit over..

Adding £40 to the other one.. It would be things like the case, maybe a cpu cooler etc.. Nothing major.
