For 500-600 I'd suggest a Intel i5 4440, MSI H87M-E35 , 8Gb of memory and a GTX 650ti. Find a good quality 500W 80+ PSU and any case and you'll have a decent gaming experience. Don't expect to play BF4 at ultra or anything, you'd probably have to tone it medium to get good frames.

Intel build is hard with this budget, it's possible but you are going to have a weaker graphics card compared to a fx-6300 system (which i would recommend).

If you get the cheaper ram+psu from my build it would be close to 650$ with a GTX 760 ;)
