Hello. My friend wants to get into PC gaming, and instead of getting one of the new consoles, he decided it's finally time for him to get a PC.

His price range is $400-$500, possible $600. I don't think he has a mouse, keyboard or a monitor.

For a graphics card, I have an old GTX 560 Ti that I might be able to sell that to him for $80.

If anyone has any recommendations, I (and him) would really appreciate it.

If you can post a PC build in the comments, possible with a mouse/keyboard and monitor that would be awesome! Thank you so much.
