I just really need a Gaming PC build that's 550$ and under. I don't need any monitor, keyboard, etc. just need a full rig with a OS, preferred Windows 7/8. Thanks!

Well...you don't need it since the APU comes with one. Unless you want better cooling that is, then get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

So this is a tad over but the $20 much improves the performance. Dropping down to the gtx 950 would be in the price but drastically reduce performance. In the future upgrade the mobo and CPU to an Intel combo and you'll have a great system.

I forgot to add it in the description, but could this run battlefield 4, h1z1, etc and high graphics around 50fps would you say?

Yeah it will do 1080p on those.

This will run the games you mentioned pretty well. The intel CPU is going to be way better for gaming.

Sounds like I'll be going with this build then, just one question though, the motherboard having the 3.0 usb and the case not having the 3.0 usb front panel for them won't be a problem?

You'll just have to plug in your usb3 stuff in the back. The cheapest case w/ usb3 in the front is: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcacore1100bl
