I am looking towards building a Gaming pc, My budget is $650-$700, I would love for someone to help me pick out parts(Motherboard, memory, gpu, etc.) I would like this Pc to be able to run skyrim on medium or high settings running at 40-60 fps and other games on kinda medium or high settings such as DayZ mod, Battlefield 3, etc. I am really really new to PC building, this would be my first attempt to build one :D, Yet again i would appreciate for someone to help me, Thanks.
