Unofficial PC Transition Thread

So yes, I'm finally making the transition to PC! (After waiting for five~ years...) Anyways, my budget is around 400-500$. I want the computer to be able to run BF3 at the LOWEST settings at the minimum. I repeat: I do not care about Ultra, aliasing, and all that fancy crap. I just want it to run smoothly. I also have no idea how to "put together" a computer (separate parts and whatnot), so a pre-built computer is preferred (dunno if computers come pre-built or not >_>). So all you computer magicians, help me out please ^^

EDIT: I also don't need a keyboard/monitor/mouse, though it would be nice if you could fit a keyboard somewhere in there (again, no idea how computer orders work).

EDIT2: I'm a fool. No unnecessary parts (SSD, etc). I need an OS too.

There is a thread already for a 500 dollar pc. Have a look at that.

Also I dislike your chances of getting a pc and periferals for that price. Tho I know getting a keyboard for nothing is far from hard the monitor on the cheap will mean having to find a friend selling one or Gumtree feeling nice.

Dear Sao/Soko/Every other mod out there...

We should make a "dedicated PC transition thread".
This should be it. Failure, please change the thread title to : "PC Transition thread (or whatever similar)"


Can you build a computer by yourself? Is the OS needed? Do you need stuff that's not a necessary component?




500$ 40.5 FPS on ULTRA BF3 Single player. I think it would translate well into multiplayer as well.

Done.

And no, I don't need any peripherals or unnecessary parts (like an SSD). I would prefer prebuilt, but I'm sure I could put a computer together.
(Also, apparently we're broke, so no money for a while. It was nice to think I was getting a computer for a little bit ;( )

EDIT 2: Derp, forgot about OS. Yes, I will be needing an OS.

A PC for 500$? I'd just play on a Xbox instead of that.

Why? You don't need to pay an obscene amount of money to game on a PC, contrary to popular belief.
