Build Help Noob

I'm really new to gaming computer building. This being my first gaming computer that I will be buying. I just need someone to give me parts to buy around 600-500 dollars that will last me a good two years. Please and thank you. :)

  1. $500-600 build for two years? It will work, but you won't be able to max any graphics settings on today's or future games. Do you need Windows?
  2. I would like to have windows. I'm not looking to max any graphics. I'm just looking for medium to high gameplay with a good framerate

    With Windows the hardware will cost you $500 max, based on your budget. Here's something that may work:
