First build, need a decent budget PC

Hello, I'm looking to build a budget PC. Unfortunately, I'm pretty new to this, so I have no idea how to go about it, and need some help, so I'd like to ask you guys to help me put together a decent budget PC.

My limit is $600, and it would need to include everything; core pieces, OS, and peripherals, sans the monitor if necessary. Ideally the core pieces would get the most attention. I wouldn't mind getting cheaper peripherals, so long as they aren't junk. Primary use of the PC would be gaming, hopefully playing things like Dark Souls 2.

Thanks in advance.
