I am looking to build a pc for under 600$ for gaming.
i was wondering if anyone could make me a parts list with a quad core processor minimum. I want to play games like battle field 3 and planetside 2

Hi. Do you need a monitor? If not, what's the resolution? Do you need an OS? Do you have any preferred website(s)? Assuming you don't need any and can buy from any website this build below should do. You can add another 4GB of the same RAM later on. If you can stretch your budget a little more, then you can get 8GB RAM or 1TB hard drive or a better case. Or if you can't, then downgrade your graphics card to the HD 7850 2GB instead to spend more money on other parts. Feel free to make changes to your liking.

The build I complied is much better. But if you have to go with Tiger Direct and AMD processor, I recommend the following changes:

You're wasting money with a $90 760W PSU that you don't need. This 550W one is better for $60 after rebate.

XFX ProSeries Core Edition 550W
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

The GTX 650 Ti is better and cheaper at $120 after rebate.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 650 Ti GC 65IGH8DL7AXX Video Card - 1GB GDDR5
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Or you can get the HD 7850 1GB for $160 after rebate which is better than both the HD 7770 and GTX 650 Ti.

Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 11200-16-20G Video Card - 1GB GDDR5
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Wait to see if you need an aftermarket cooler before you buy it. If you really want one, go with this better one instead. It will just barely clear the NZXT M59 according to user reviews.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

+1, its a good build.

Definitely recommend the 7850 downgrade for the 8GB of RAM and 1TB drive.
