You won't get a performance pc for $600. You'll get an entry point pc. See what Linus put together - http://youtu.be/LcVbFXSlgEc $1000

ok thank you all for your help vi decided I want something like this:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3xxoD

I added the same psu that I have now to the parts list to check for compatibility the price should be just shy of 620$ what do you guys think of the current setup? I dont necessarily need a case with handles since they have the straps you can buy for 20$
