The lights are on
I am looking to buy a decent gaming PC that will play BF3, BF4 on ultra settings. I have no idea what is good, and I was hoping you guys can help me out. My price range is 800-900 but not more than 1100. I won't be purchasing this until next year.
No, at the beginning of a console generation the systems are sold at a loss. You will not be able to build a PC with the same performance for the same price. In 3 years or so probably but in the next 3 months it just wont happen. Game devs can also get more out of a console in terms of performance since it is a close system with known software on it where they get direct, or darn near it direct hardware access.
The price of PC gaming is front loaded. Where as the console makers are willing to take a hit on the hardware knowing they will make it back on the software, that is not the case on PC. However our software tends to be cheaper by $10 on average, if you wait for sales it can easily be 50% cheaper than consoles. Over a 6 or 8 year period it adds up to where I spend less gaming on PC than I would on consoles, but you need to have that initial chunk of money to get started. Having none of the accessories sets you back even more. A mid ranged 22'-24' monitor will set you back $120-$180, Windows will set you back $80-$120, KB/M will run you $60-$80 for a decent non gaming set $150 for gaming versions, you also need speakers or a headset.
Also your first post made a common mistake for new PC gamers. You cant walk in with a budget, and also want ultra settings on a high graphics game. To hit ultra settings on a game like BF3, Crysis, Metro 2033, Witcher 2, with a solid 30+fps is not easy. However near ultra or high end settings is very doable. You can still max out the details, the resolution, and all that just need to be willing to lower some of the filters and AA. That is doable on a budget. Still not overly cheap, because as I said above the cost of PC gaming is front loaded.
Here is a build where I would start if I was you. It is about $800 for the hardware, I also tossed on a monitor and a copy of Windows, that brought it up too $1000. You would still need KB/M and probably a set of speakers or headphones.
Building your own is ALMOST ALWAYS your best bet in terms of price. Though if you are patient and watch sales you can sometimes get some decent deals, especially around Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Now keep in mind what a lot of the "Gaming PCs" you buy from retailers have a decent CPU and GPU, but then a crap mother board, power supply and case. Yet if you get it for the right price it can be worth it. But you need to have some idea what it is you are getting.
We're sorta like 7-Eleven. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

I also need a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I hope I'm not asking for too much.
Your best bet would be to build your own,
For that price you can build a nice PC, check out Newegg for prices on hardware.
Better go for custom / assembled computer then branded

So here's another question, would I get a better deal by buying the Xbox One? By this I mean graphically for the price. In other words (sorry for re-phrasing this three times lol) can I get a PC that will run BF4, Titanfall, and all the other upcoming games at equal or better resolution/frame rate for the 542.00 price?
Thank you for being so helpful. I plan to get a decent gaming PC in the spring of next year. By then I'll hopefully have a larger budget. Plus parts may be cheaper also.
my advice is to buy a PC with at least Inter I3 Processor and 4GB RAM

Based on the research I've done, you can't do much with an i3, so, i7 is the way to go for recent games. Those are quite expensive, so I'll probably stick with an i5 quad core with 4-8GB ram. A GTX 700 series GPU would be pretty sweet too.
yeah for the most part you dont want an i3, you very likely dont want an i7 either. The i7s only real advantage over the i5s is hyper-threading which does nothing for gaming. The also tend to have slightly higher clock speeds but not enough to justify the price, the extra money would be better spent on an after market cooler and then just over clock the i5.
You also want 8 gigs of ram. 4 is just not enough for gaming, and memory is cheap.
Then dont write off AMD CPUs. For a budget build they tend to work very well. Right now in terms of performance they are a good step behind the i5s. However this is mostly because games are currently terribly optimized for multi-core use. Right now the big advantage of AMD CPUs are they have more cores than intel CPUs (and price). So their main advantage is countered by poor game optimization. However with both the PS4 and X1 using AMD 8 core processors this could quickly change. It is very likely as we move into this next generation of consoles games will become far better optimized for mulit-core use significantly improving AMDs 8 core cpu performance. If you are not building till spring take a wait and see approach, but with AMD being the CPUs and GPUs in both the PS4 and X1 thing could very quickly swing in their favor.
I agree, that's why I decided to wait. Well, that and the price. I think I read an article somewhere that touches on what you just mentioned. I'll have a good PC soon enough, I just have to be patient and save up a bit.
When the peak level of 2.0 on the line, we will experience the pinnacle of your character all together, we will count the total number (remember that you get the number of the total experience, rather than the level) and decided to share the peak level of your new number. Again, this statistic is based on the game type distinction.To enjoy more of your game, you can buy Cheap Fifa 14 Coins here.The peak level of 2.0 experience demand curve final decision yet, so we may not be able to under the current peak level directly into the shared peak levels.At the peak level of 2.0, if the character dies or is deleted, the total peak level of experience will remain in Cheap Runescape 2007 Gold your shared peak level does not have any losses.

If you're buying a new monitor, keyboard and mouse you might have a hard time staying under $1,100. If your just getting the parts and you already have most of your peripherals then you'll easily be able to make a killer rig for under $1,100... especially if you go the AMD/ATI route instead of the Intel/Nvidia route.
If that is the case then it is better to buy new set of computer than buy new monitor, keyboards and mouse.
