SO i will be building my first pc soon. It needs to be around 600$ max like 610$ it must include pc itself, keyboard, mouse i will be using linux until the end of summer and then buy windows and have a dual boot. I also need a wireless card whether it be psi or usb aslong as its good enough to compare with todays devices. I would prefer using intel. Because amd has no upgrade path and i could later get an i5 or i7. But if you must suggest an amd build down below. I currently am using a dual core 1.6 ghz laptop cpu with integrated graphics. So anything in that price range is a major upgrade for me. I plan on playing minecraft and maybe call of duty on this. I come from ps3 so maybe even skyrim cause im sure it looks way better than on ps3 anyway i plan on recording minecraft with a 64x64 texture pack. And when not recording i would love to max out minecraft. So please tell me if this build is worth it thanks.

Pentium 2120, like the i3 but without hyperthreading, which most games don't utilize. Gave you a killer video card, that card is basically a 7950.

Got you a 1080p screen, and the GTX 650 Ti is the best mid-range GPU out there. Will max minecraft no problem.
