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. :)

$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?

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
