Hey guys, I'm a console player and I'm looking at PC gaming right now. I don't have a big budget and I'm looking to buy one this week. I have no clue as to how to build a PC and which components are good. So I'm asking for your help, to find me a PC that can run high settings, I think ultra would be unrealistic for my budget.

Really? Because I've seen some pretty reasonable PC's that ran games on high. Like the guy review tech usa had a pretty decent rig for cheap.

That build price isn't the same but I apologize for making this thread, I couldn't find the information I was looking for. I saw this from a google search http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rdVA

Tiny bit over budget but should handle any modern game on high settings easily.
