Hi,
I'm looking to build a PC soon for under $600. If you guys could make a list of parts to build it that would be amazing. Oh, and I already have a graphics card and windows 7 so you can leave those out of the list. Thanks in advance!

Yeah I'd need a dvd drive and I already have wireless networking. The GPU is an AMD Radeon 6570. Im going to upgrade it later to something better. So I'd probably need a good PSU as well in the build. Update: Oh actually I don't have wireless networking, i forgot.

I added 750 Watts PSU.You can change it,If you want. If you going to get High-End GPU in future then 750 Watts PSU will be ideal.

Those are some nice builds but I am going to for-warn you, that 6570 is going to bottleneck with the CPUs that Parthu has in his builds. Don't expect too much as far as modern gaming is concerned because your aren't gonna get much of an improvement in graphics and FPS with the 6570. Happy building :) .
