Help on which build to choose from

Ok guys I've throw two build together and stolen another build that looks pretty good. I don't really care about amd vs intel, I'm neutral in that war, but what I am looking for the best performance at the lowest price point. My intention was to spend right around 650$ maybe up to 700$ (usd). This rig will mainly (90%) for dayz, and maybe wow. I would just like to hear your opinions on which build you would go for if you had my budget, or feel free to throw another build out there, I'm just getting back into gaming and the research and reading just to catch up on the tech has been exhausting. Keep in mind I will need an os and monitor, so that really cuts into the budget. Thanks guys, you guys rock btw, great community and great forum.
