$500 Budget Gaming Build (Help!)

Hi I'm new to gaming computers and I honestly know little to nothing about building one. Some workers at a local store said I could tell them what parts to order and they would build it completely. I really didn't want to make any stupid decisions so I came here to get some help from people with a better mindset on building computers.
Please if you can give me links to to every part so I'll know what to tell the people, it would help a lot.
I know enough about computers. I just not very familiar with building one.
I have everything needed below
Thank you!


Approximate Purchase Date: Late January / Early February

Budget Range: <$600
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mainly Gaming and Watching Movies

Parts Not Required: Keyboard

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg please!

Country: United States (U.S.)

Parts Preferences: None really just give me all your ideas.

    um.. the display and the hdd would take out a good chunk of the $600. the sbm build doesn't include display.
