So I'm looking to build my first pc for gaming and I have about 700 bucks to spend. Unfortunately, I also need an operating system which will leave only 600 dollars for the build itself. Could somebody post a good 600 dollar build? Obviously, I'm looking for the absolute most bang for my buck. If possible, it would be great if the build contained a radeon hd 6870, but that may be asking too much for a budget build.
