I am building my friend a pc for gaming. The budget is $650. He needs a monitor and os. No keyboard or mouse needed. Could anyone throw together a good build in pcpartpicker for me? I have been trying to build one for an hour and i just can't balance it properly. hopefully someone can.

It is a slight bit above the budget, but I think that it is worth the extra money.
