Ok so here's a little background. My parents have decided that they will buy me a gift because I graduated from High school early. I believe they want to get me an Ipad Air. However, I might be able to convince them to get me a computer instead. My budget is $600 and yes I'm aware that Black Monday is coming up so It will probably shed a couple bucks off the price. I want to build the PC so I need the best components for a Budget Gaming PC. Mostly centered around the video card and processor. And yes I also will need a 1080p monitor.

Goes over budget but if you or your parents know how rebates work than it should be about the same. If it has to be 600 before rebate you can always downgrade the graphics to a radeon hd 7790 or a 7850

Look for a low priced haswell CPU, like an i3 on sale for <110 or i5 for <160. There's a 7870 on sale for 130 AR. There's bunch of solid mobo's on sale for under 60-70 that are pretty futureproof, like an H87.

Tiger direct has a Vertex 450 128GB for 30 bucks after promo + AR. Power supplies are super cheap, look for a 550-650 under 50 bucks easy. Now isn't the time to make a pcpartpicker list and follow it. There's so many deals online from now til BF til CM it's crazy.

this probably is the best budget gaming PC under 650$ build (IMO) with including monitor. you can still cut the price if you change your PC case. This is a crossfire build and can play high/ultra settings on the latest games.
