If you need an OS, Monitor, Keyboard, and Mouse, you can kiss a decent gaming computer goodbye. On a 600 dollar budget, we go negative 250 bucks minimum just on those items. Which leaves us 400 bucks for case/psu/mobo/ram/cpu/gpu/hdd and that just isn't enough. You might be able to put something together, maybe an i3 build or an apu build but you won't be able to play much besides minecraft. If you have a monitor and an OS, then you should have enough to build something playable. If you don't your only real option is to fork up another 200 bucks, minimum.

Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard; and Microcenter if he's lucky. I know in Arizona we got nadda. If 600s the budget, its pretty unworkable I think. GL to the OP, that's /thread between AMD and I.

^That... is a bloody impressive budget build.

However, if it is the case that the OP has nothing, then he's screwed.

OP, consider it like this: When you set out to go kayaking, you have a choice of kayaks, right? But first you have to get your paddle, gloves, wetsuit, and things such as these.

The monitor, mouse, keyboard, and often OS are these equivalents. They're the requirements to get in the game, and are much of the up-front cost, but will stick around through however many upgrades you have in the future.

I'd suggest going with the $600 build above, and funding the monitor, mouse, and keyboard from a different budget. (I personally spent about $600 on those three parts - a $400 3d, 120Hz monitor, a $60 mouse, and a $140 mechanical keyboard. And I have to say, I don't regret spending a cent of it.)

Most of the time you dont "need" a monitor if you have a television with HDMI ports. Plus it saves on speakers since your TV already has them and video+sound are piped through HDMI. You'll still be looking at 150-180 on the OS and mouse+keyboard. Obviously this only works if you have the ability/physical dimensions to set your computer close to your TV.

So we are in agreement? /thread lol I think I scared off the OP with my first response as I believe he doesn't have the OS/Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse. Pretty rough...
