How does this budget gaming PC build look? I am trying to keep it as close to $600 or less, of which includes the costs for the Windows 7 OS and a cheap keyboard.

Also, are all the components compatible/recommended to work with one another well?

Any suggestions/tips/etc. would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Looking at your pcpartpicker list, if you didn't override where you are buying the parts from, you could get it for under your $600 budget. But all in all, its a good rig for gaming

This is considerably better on the CPU side and has a lot more upgrading options.

I changed the GPU with ASUS DirectCU II HD7790 which is slightly better for the same price

You would take the 7790 over the r7 260x? I understand it slightly outperforms the r7 currently, but I believe that the 7790 is more optimized and that the r7 is a new gpu with some cool features to improve the performance over some time.

Just my opininon, though.

Thanks

What cool features? If you are talking about AMD mantle, then it comes for HD 7000 series too. If anything, the r9 260x might only level with the 7790 (2GB GDDR5), but not overpass it.
