I have no clue about computers so could you guys help me out a found a couple videos about building a PC and I was wondering which one is the best. I want to play Day-Z and G-mod at great graphics and also want to record in the background using an legato and not wanting that to lag my game. Here are the specs of the computers that I found. Also I don't want to go over $750 but I would like a computer more around $600 but if its worth it ill go to $750.

All honesty,

1) The i5 with the GTX970 is the best out of all of them.

2) The FX8350 system with the R9 285 is decent runner up of that i5 system.

I'd say away from the dual core CPU's like the i3 or Pentium. Newer game will tax them out, leaving no room for your system to really do anything such as recording or streaming gameplay.

One 8Gb is cheaper then buying 2 4GB. Also, go up another 100w. Also, what is your plan for this computer other than gaming?

Also, be careful with certain mid towers, not all can support large video cards. Antec makes some cases that are $20 more but can fit the large video cards.
 
This would have much more bang for your buck than any of the above systems while staying in your preferred price range:
