Hello, I've recently gotten into pc gaming and I've saved up to 600$ and I really need some help to pick some parts. The parts I do not need to buy are the OS and the monitor. I live in Canada but I am currently in the US. Thanks!!!

Also games I want to play are BF4,Minecraft, CSGO, TF2, FarCry3. I also want to record some Gameplay. It's fine if FarCry BF4 won't run on Ultra but I'd like minecraft to run at Ultra thanks!

Yeah the amd is better. Honestly if you spent $200 more you would get performance with is 3 or 4 times better. Usually its the GPU that makes the most difference when playing games.
keep in mind that you will have to upgrade your CPU if you get a really high end gpu (for example a nvidia gtx 760, gtx 770 or an amd r9 270x, r9 290 etc.)

Although intel is argued to be better overall, amd is much less expensive on the most part. If you're you're willing to go up to 660, I would recommend this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2erNy

The processor easily beats out the athlon and the i3 previously mentioned.

Yeah, it might be a better idea if you bought a better cpu now.

Ok here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2tzBY

You can upgrade to a hard drive with more storage if you want. You could also find a cheaper psu and motherboard but you should allocate a good part of your money to those as they are extremely important. And if you don't like the look of the case, you can choose another, just make sure it's compatible

Gigabyte has proven to be more reliable than MSI. Asus also has great boards
