How much would a decent PC cost me?

The next gen consoles look a little....undesirable, so I'm thinking of jumping to the PC ship. How much would I need for a PC that could play BF4 and future games at a decent level? Also, who should I go with for the CPU and GPU?

400-1000$, and for a decent budget build go for amd fx 9350 or a good a10

Welcome to the party. For a budget build, I'd go with amd for CPU (but go intel, i5 if you can afford it), and for video card, it doesn't really matter, just go for the card that is best for your budget. I'd make a separate topic in the future about it. Expect to spend around $600 at least.

I am sure someone here can whip you up a decent build for under 1000 dollar. I spent 800 euros in 2010 for a new build and with some upgrading, it still runs newer games well today.

All depends on what you define as decent, there's going to be a price gap between running the game at low-medium settings at 30fps vs 60 fps at max settings.
