Gaming PC for $900 [Noob Needs Help]

Heys guys I would like a PC that can run the latest games (BF4, GTA V, and MMO games). I'm also really interested in recording gameplay or streaming it. I need peripherals too. This will be my first gaming PC ever. Thank you very much!

The cheaper the better and the performance matters slightly more for me. Price can't go over $950

Insert appropriate AMD card if you prefer.

I really like this idea, actually. Assuming there isn't going to be any overclocking, that Xeon will blow an i5 out of the water. Only issue is that hyperthreading isn't super helpful for games.
