I am starting a game development company and we need to buy computers for game development. We are going to be using unreal engine 4 and cry engine 3.5.8 along with max and Maya , what would be a great build for developing games with these programs that will be AAA quality and will be published on Xbox one and ps4? Also needs to be very close to $600 we will be buying multiple of these

I'm no expert in this area, but I'm pretty sure it will take more than a $600 computer to be that good.

You need more than that to produce high quality game and faster processing of renders. I also suggest to have a 32GB RAM since there will be a lot of gigantic need for that in modeling.

look into exactly what those programs you want to use run off, are they GPU or CPU based.

As a side note, I've seen people on here wanting professional MAYA machines looking at $10k builds.
