$400-$500 Gaming PC For My Friend

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.
