Never built a PC before and looking to build one now. I play high graphic games such as Battlefield, COD, Far Cry and Steam games. I'd also use the computer for surfing the web, mixing music and watching movies. I would like to be able to run my games in 1080p and if at all reasonable, I'd also be interested in recording gameplay. If the recording gameplay part is a little far fetched for a $600 dollar build, it's not something I'd be devastated if I wasn't able to do. If someone could give me a list of different parts that would fit, or go over my budget by no more than $30, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hi , Here you have really good parts to PC Do you need OS? I did trow in Windows 8 but you can remove it or take 7.
Couple 120mm fans o top of this case makes it work silent and cool. One more to floor of case makes your video card run cooler. This way you can adjust the original video card fans run smaller rpm- even more silent PC.
Take Scythe Gentle Typhoons (120mm) 1150rpm is good. Or some other 140mm fan is working too tp top of that case.
Here is build. PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1gMtt

Maybe you need more memory? Then take this memory. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-memory-bls2kit8g3d...

On the Logical Increments website, are all those PCs on the pricing list for gaming? Would you recommend taking parts from the "Good" tier and adding a few more expensive parts for Graphics and RAM from more expensive tiers or would the more expensive parts not work well with the cheaper parts from the "Good" tier? Sorry for being such a noob :p

i didnt exactaly get what you mean, but basically you're asking if you could, for example, put a high-tier graphics card on a low-budget motherboard, or a high end CPU on a low-end motherboard, etc, etc?

to some extent, yes, you could grab a 300 dollar graphics card and a 70 dollar motherboard and a 100 dollar cpu and it would work, as long as the sockets fit and the power supply can... supply it all.

just do some research on the parts, a really bad CPU would hold your powerful graphics card back, a cheaper motherboard with an older socket might limit your upgrades in the future, a bad power supply might leave you hanging when you most need it.

but it can be done, sure, as long as the round pegs fit in round holes.
