Here are the parts I've found so far. Budget is between 600-650. Want to ensure the ssd as well as a graphic and comp specifications that would allow, for example, high League of Legends/Dota2 settings as well as standardized Skyrim settings. Help tailoring the products or finding more cost-effective parts is what I'm looking for. Please Help:

He is still building an AMD based PC, however you had a chip with onboard graphics inbuilt, which is unnecessary if you are buying a dedicated GPU.

Your build had a dual core processor. His build has a much more powerful 6 core processor.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for this, it helps a great deal. I'm new to this and would like to keep my budget low while allowing for both future investment in better parts while having current real time playability.
