So I am going to try and make this as simple of a question as possible. I am new to the gaming pc world and I am looking to build my first gaming desktop around christmas time. I am on an $800 dollar budget. Can somebody please list the parts I will need to achieve this goal.


Note: I want a minimum of 8gb of ram, 1TB of hard drive space, and decent cooling supplies so I can overclock. I have already been looking at the AMD 4300 or 6300 CPU and an AMD Radeon 6670, but I don't know exactly what I need :( . I want to run games like Battlefield 3, Planetside 2 and Arma3 on high settings. Thank you for the help!
