Wanting to make Custom PC need help finding right parts!

Hi, I want to build my own custom PC on a budget, but I really have no idea where to start so I need with which processors and motherboards ect I should get. Right now I have a budget of 400-600$ even and that MUST include Windows 8.1. Also I already have a graphics card which I will upgrade at a later date. A quick and helpful response is most welcome!!

Graphics Card: Radeon HD 7750 PCI Express 3.0 2GB DDR3

    Thank you very much, how is this in terms of upgradability? What settings would this build run games like bioshock infinite, world of Warcraft, and league of legends at if you know?
  3. i5 haswell is now the latest 4 cores intel cpu. which is close to the top performance chart
    the upcoming intel cpu will use the same mobo, in case you want to upgrade the cpu

    as i said, you can later buy Radeon 280X ($300++) or 270X ($220+)
    those card are overkill for merely MMO

    Is the ASrock mobo good though? Ive read reviews on a lot of ASrock mobo's and a lot of them are good
