600$ gaming build help

I'm looking to build a gaming PC for at most 600$ I'm supposed to get 120$ more but I can't wait anymore.
Now as I said my budget is 600$ and I want to be able to play most game at highs or maxed out (like a pc at this budget could handle that...) ex: Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Saints Row 3, Crysis 1 and/or 2.


I have a list of stuff but it goes over my budget :c I need help finding stuff that fits in my budget but still good enough to handle games.

    I would save a bit more and try and get a gtx 480 @ 200 bucks if I could. That with the rest of the rig will play any game out a max with good FPS.
  10. That build doesn't include the OS, dvd burner, heatsink or monitor, or a case.
  11. if he needs os and monitor hes out of luck not possible on 600 budget period
  12. I can get him a $650 build with everything that will play games like MW3 on max settings and other games pretty high but he'd have to overclock all the time.

    :o where at
  14. I think your best bet is going with something like this comes out to roughly $612 it's the best i can do on your budget unless the other member can really get you something that can play those games on ultra settings with a OS,keyboard, mouse, aftermarket cooler and monitor elect which i seriously doubt is possible :??: this is your best bet.

    It would probably also be a good idea to get some cheap but nice case fans later down the road too. A couple of these would probably do the trick (They also come with red or blue LEDs):

    It has DVD/CASE. Dont need a cpu cooler.

    Most build here dont have monitor/OS as part of the build. If the OP states he needs those things he needs to keep on saving.

    Out of the Box!

    I like this overall, but the OP should be aware that the upgrade path does not look too hot for AMD right now. In game tho that 480 will make it feel like a camp of a build. I wounder if an i3 build would be a better option.

    Sorry about using different parts then you're aimed at but I have reason. For the i3-2100, it uses a Lga 1155 Socket so when you want to upgrade you can put in an i7 and be Future-Proof if you need it. For the Radeon 7770 if it doesn't meet your needs it is a relatively cheap card that you can Crossfire later for $125. You can add a monitor when you get the $120.
