Need help! Building first gaming PC!

I'm new into the PC gaming world. I have never built a pc and honestly I have no idea how to pick part. Im soooooo lost when it comes to this. 

My budget is $600 - $700 on the build with a monitor included (the pc is strictly for gaming). I have a keyboard and mouse, and a OS. I know for the case I want something very sleek and all black, no windows (not my thing personally), and I don't want it to be huge, I don't want it to take up a lot of space. I mostly going to play FPS and RPG and probably anything that catches my eye. I have love many different genres of gaming. 

I know its a lot to ask for, but I just need help, I have no idea what I'm doing and I really want to start gaming on a PC badly! I've always been a console player :(

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!


This build should meet your needs pretty well -

Why not ditch the CD-ROM drive and get the FX-6300?  (you'll need to change mobos of course)

True.  You'd have to make up the money somewhere if you upgraded to the six core.  Although, at that point, I'd suggest adding a CPU cooler as well, which would bring the price up even more.

I agree, but I would recommend getting a USB DVD drive some time in the future. A DVD has actually saved my ass before, plus their handy for live-discs (I know you can do it with flash drives, but its hard to make towers out of flash drives :p) With this build, you could play even the newes titles like BF4 at 1080p with high settings, and get almost solid 60 FPS.

The ram is "only" 1333 MHz, but you will see no difference in gaming, wether it is 1333 MHz or 2400 MHz

Also, i picked a nice ASUS 23.6" 1080p monitor

I hope i helped :)

probably not exactly as good as m33b's, or just a different way of approaching it.

Using an AMD apu with fast memory to boost graphics performance and if you want to upgrade to a dedicated gpu later on, the option is there of course with a powerful enough psu to power most gpus!

How would this work? Any changes to make it better or change the price?

That would work just fine.

The only thing I would be worried about is the stock cooler for that CPU.  If you had planned on overclocking, you'll want to invest in an aftermarket heatsink/cooler like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. If you weren't planning on overclocking, it should be OK, but I would be more comfortable about the longevity of the processor if it had better cooling.

You also won't be getting the benefits of dual channel if you only install one stick of RAM.  You may not notice a big difference, but it's something to think about.

I'll be honest with you, I have no idea how to over clock and what it does. And I don't know what the benefits of dual channel are.

If that's the case, and you're willing to go a bit over budget, then I'd say go for it!
