If anyone with more experience than I would be willing to help, I need a list of parts that are all compatible with each other to build a gaming pc for only $500-$600. I would like to be able to run minecraft, WoW, Skyrim, and Dayz on medium or possibly high settings.

Processer- No preference, whatever is cheapest and does the job.

I do not need a monitor, keyboard, speakers, mouse, or operating system.

I would like to have a 64g sdd and at least a tb hdd.

I would prefer around 8g of ram.

Purchases will be made in the next 1-2 weeks.

All help is much appreciated.

An SSD will give you faster boot and program load times, but isn't really something that should go into a sub $1000 build (that money can best be used elsewhere.

Something like this might work for you:

The i3 is going to be outdated very fast and harder to upgrade with a 7850, I reccomend using the i5-2400 with hd 7770

It will, although it appears to be more expensive right now.

What are you basing this on? Few games to date make much, if any, use of the 3rd and 4th cores in quad core CPUs. I haven't heard anything to suggest that will change in the near future.
