What is the best possible computer I can get for 600 dollars. I want High (If possible) Settings in the newest and next-gen games like Battlefield 4, Crysis 3, Bioshock: Infinite, ect. And maybe some 2k textures in Skyrim. I know this might be a challenge. I already have the peripherals and OS that I need. I have a 720p Monitor but I would also really love to run these on my 1080p Flat screen, but I know some sacrifices need to be made for this super strict budget.

Oh, sorry, I forgot to mention I already have a hard drive. And I already have the processor, so I will keep it, but still keep its place in the budget. So if I take out the HDD and put the extra money for a GPU, what should I get?

That's around $100, so maybe go for the 770? It's what I have and it's phenomenal. It might run you a little more than 300, but it's totally worth it.

This is better. The cpu on his build is quite weak. His has a faster GPU, but this comes with the faster cpu (very important) and two games.

I do like the build, but myself personally, have had past issues with the i3's. Even the Haswells never seemed to be that great.

When you are going for best budget PC, you really have to go with AMD, they have some great processors, and when it comes down the the i3's, it's usually not worth spending that much when you could get a really nice AMD processor, and for gaming, the CPU is NOT the main part of your build, unless you play games that go on really long or turn based games like CIV 5, but that wasn't in your list. Intel is great, but budget-performance gaming, go with the AMD processor.

Hope this helps!

It's really nice, the R9 series GPU's are kicking ass right now. It's almost at par if not on the level of a 760. And for a little cheaper it's a great deal. It can run pretty much all the new games on ultra with decent FPS, but obviously you can go down to high or medium to ramp up FPS, the games will still look great.

Correct, mostly the290 and 290x have been getting really hot, but that is with the one fan setup, if you get a Windforce or TwinFrozr design, you should be good.
