i'm really not looking to spend more than 1200 bucks and i would like a prebuilt pc that will play pretty much any game on good to high settings...most importantly battlefield 3-4
so far what i've found that looks appealing is: Customize CyberPower Z87 Configurator Gaming PC
the only thing i would be using it for is gaming and i do need to get a monitor that's gonna cost like $200ish
also i should note that i know building your own pc will save money but id really rather just go with prebuilt...oh and i have no idea what im doing when it comes to buying a decent pc
gotta go to work in 10 mins sorry for the bad grammar and thanks for any help
Hi and welcome to the forums. I also used to primarily play Xbox. I received help from these forums and got myself a PC for both gaming and game design since I personally don't know much about PC's.
I took a look at the link you gave and have some suggestions based on a number of other threads and first time builders (including myself).
To start, the GPU (gtx 650) needs to be upgraded and should be a HUGE focus. If you want to play on higher settings I would recommend getting something like a 760 or higher (770, 680.. higher if you want but these should suffice)
Also, you don't really need Liquid Cooling unless you plan to overclock or you prefer/want it for a much quieter pc, then nevermind ^_^
Last but definitely important, that cyberpower PC has 'Standard Power Supply' checked and didn't see a name. It is important to invest in a high quality (name brand) power supply unit to ensure it lasts and won't crap out on you.
A standard no-name power supply unit can fail and take part of your pc down with it. A PC being an investment, you want to ensure it has the power it needs.

No idea. Not much of a builder myself ^_^
