Need help for a $500 Gaming PC Build

Hi, I need help picking parts for a $500 gaming computer. I already have my peripherals, and monitor. I would like to get Windows 8.1 OS, and this should be included in the budget. 

 

I live in Canada so my currency here is obviously CAN. NOT USD. 

 

I want a computer to run the latest games and the up coming game. I want this computer to atleast run Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor at 1080p and Battlefield 4 at 1080p high settings. If this is possible that would be great.

 

THANK YOU. :D

I'm going to be frankly honest with you, it's nearly impossible. I too live in canada so I know what the prices are like, for 500$ can you'd have to turn the settings down to medium at least. 1080p on high can't be a thing with that small of a budget. You are probably better off saving up some money or ( god forbid I'm saying this ) buying a console.

Best I can do with a OS included. Don't expect it to play games at ultra high settings
