I have a PC Build in mind but I'm not 100% sure about it. Im on a budget of about $500-600. Can you guys give me PC builds that are good that are in my budget. I want the PC to be able to run DayZ Standalone at atleast medium settings with decent FPS and most other games at medium settings. Also, make sure the parts you list are all compatible with each other. Thanks :)

380w is more than enough for this build but if it makes you feel better, you can get a good 500w psu for around the same price.

If you can afford to buy this, it won't let you down I think. But we may make it cheaper by changing CPU and GPU. Thanks to CTurbo for some parts.
