Need a 600$ PC Gaming Build

Hey guys starbeetle here. I would just like to know a pretty good decent gaming pc build for 600$(It's my budget) I'd like to at least play borderlands 2 on high-max settings. This is going to be my first build, and currently I have a laptop which is pretty bad for games :(. But I've decided to build a PC! Thanks, if you need anymore info just tell me! Starbeetle

EDIT: Do I want OS? no.
Do I want a monitor? no.
am i australian? Yes. so please use AUS sites

    I was looking at that for a while but I kind of let go of it some reason. I only have 600$ btw. Also could it run Borderlands 2 on high-max? Or at least medium? Thanks. :ange:
  3. I'm sorry, I'm a bit confused with the first post.

    Tell me if I got it right - You want us to list the OS and monitor in our build, but we won't count it to be part of the budget?

    This is without the OS and the monitor:

    Sorry! I know I was a bit confusing. What I mean is

    With the build you have/or going to reccommend to me. Could you add the OS and Monitor to it? AND don't add it too so I can see the prices with and without the OS and Monitor because Monitors and OS are quite expensive for my 600$ budget.
  6. With the monitor and OS, that leaves us with roughly ~$390 for the actual build though.
