This is what i got so far http://pcpartpicker.com/user/igeer12/saved/78mmP6.
If there is anything that you see that could make this better without raising the price to much or make it cheaper without lowering the quality to much then please feel free to suggest.

Also by the way I am getting cheaper graphics card now and plan on upgrading later. Thanks for any help it is greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately, you will not get too much gaming horsepower out of a 600$ build that includes an OS and monitor.
I would honestly recommend dropping the GPU, and since you`re planning to upgrade it in the future anyway, got for an APU right now, and put more money towards the rest of the build, to get more quality.

I would also suggest dropping the graphics card for now. This APU system will run anything you throw at it on 1080p on medium settings. It might not be 100 FPS or anything, but you'll certainly be able to play it without glitching around all over the place. I also got you a prettier monitor. =D
