I found this PC and would it be better to build my own computer or would buying this one do what I want to do with a computer, if building my own PC is better I would like to stay under $700.

Also I want to be able to play Day-Z and G-Mod at good graphics while I record the footage in the background using an legato and I don't want this to affect me playing the games like lagging. Also I would want this computer to be able to run Photoshop and ill do some basic stuff on there. Please let me know if this is good or not.

Here are some other ones, are they good?

If you guys could I would really love it if you found a computer at a store but if I could really save money I would build it my own.

Honestly, newegg.com has a nice compare feature when looking for a pre-built or component. I am a huge fan of building your own PC, because you can get parts combined that aren't anywhere else. This also allows you to plan for upgrades, current needs vs expansions, etc. When comparing things like CPU and GPU use this: http://www.passmark.com/ and jonnyguru.com for all components for reviews. As far as saving money goes: typically you can find a pre-built similar to one you may want to construct, but again, it won't be customized to your needs usually.

None of those pre-built PCs look bad. Do you love AMD or is Intel just out of price range? AMD does great work and will give you performance, but in my opinion Intel has made greater strides recently (970/980 GPU) and will continue to do so.

I heard AMD is the better chip but would an i7 be better to get?

Benchmarks don't lie... but it's really personal preference and budget. Intel runs more expensive, period.
