I want to build my first pc for gaming. As said by the title I want it to be between 500-600 dollars.
Some of the games I am hoping to play are Saints Row 3, Skyrim, BF3, AC3, and maybe Black Ops 2 and Gta V.
Most Important to Least: Gaming, Web Browsing, Editing and Paper Writing.
Do not need monitor, mouse, keyboard, or OS.
I would also prefer the cpu to be amd unless intel offers a better experience

Thank you in advance.

Sorry, I don't have anything in the form of a build recommendation. But I do have to say have fun waiting for GTA V on the PC XD

Also, you're probably going to want to go with an Intel. i5-2500k or -5-3570k would be the best for that budget probably.

You could get it with this card but before the rebate it'll be a little over your budget http://pcpartpicker.com/p/vzkJ

Also right now very few games use more than 1gb of vram @1080p but if you can afford the msi card get it.

Thank you this seems very good and this may not be of importance but i may open another thread like this but ask for a amd bulid to see if i can maybe squeeze some more performance in

Sorry, but you're not going to get an AMD processor that's better than that i5. The best AMD processors are pretty much equivalent to low end i5s, and the one selected is certainly not low end.
