Need a good build with a $600 budget

I an currently looking for a good gaming pc for me, and have been told many different things. Ive looked on craigslist, but im not sure if its better to just buy the parts and build it myself. I figured if i bought the parts and built it, itd be better because theyd be specific as to what type of gaming i do.
The games I play consist of WoW, Diablo 3, Tera, Combat Arms, Soldier Front, Skyrim, and DC Universe Online.
When people say that i wont be able to play the newest games at ultra, it doesnt really bother me. I dont play games like BF4, CoD, Crysis, etc.

This is the build i have so far, thanks to logainofhades

    Could use a CPU cooler and such, but it will work as it is.
  2. How much would the cooler add on? Im fine with adding 30-50 for it
  3. 30 bucks. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
  4. That sounds pretty reasonable. Is that all that i should add to it for now?
  5. Yeah that should work fine.
