Looking for good gaming build under $600

Well, I know $600 can't buy me a super computer with max FPS on 1080p on BF4, but I want a build that can at least run demanding games with at least medium settings. Thanks for any feedback


Approximate Purchase Date: Well, Hopefully soon.

Budget Range: $600 or maybe a bit higher, if necessary.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mostly Gaming, other is videos, web browsing.

Am I buying a Monitor: No

Do I need to buy an OS: Maybe, maybe not. Sorry for not being accurate. If any, Win7

Preferred Website: Newegg.com or any other reliable site anyone recommends.

Location: Eustis, FL, US

Part Preferences: Err, I'm sorta new to making computers, and I'm uneducated in it. For now, at least

Overclocking: Maybe, If I could figure out how to do so without screwing things up.

SLI or CrossFire: Once again, Errrr. I've no idea

Monitor Resolution: 1280 x 1024

Upgrading as I'm not happy with my current PC.

    Sorry for not having info, updated post.
  3. At your resolution a $600 build would be suitable.
    If you decide to upgrade to anything above 1080p, you would have to upgrade the GPU in this build.

    The case was generated just on preference, if you have anything else in the $50 range you can go for that.
    I've went with a Western Digital HDD, even though it is more expensive it's more reliable.

    Good luck!
