This is frowned upon here and is actually very illegal - if Microsoft finds out you are using a pirated version of Windows you will get fined in the five figure range. Just buy a $100 license and be done with it.

For less than $600 here's what I would suggest:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($79.98 @ Outlet PC)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($51.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($188.98 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($22.98 @ Newegg)
Total: $593.88

Agreed with what G-unit said about software pirating. Just because it is easy to do, does not make it right. Software engineers spend months or even years putting together their products. An OS is a very large and difficult project, and to suggest to steal it is not only wrong, but it pains software engineers everywhere who work on it.

Anyway, the OP wanted a budget gaming build, so here it is. This one is entirely from NewEgg.

Yeah exactly, you have to think of it this way - pay $100 for a Windows license now, or pay $15,000 (plus legal fees and other things) for using a pirated version. If you want to use a free OS use Ubuntu. If you want free Office use Open Office. If you want free anti virus use AVG Free. These are all free programs you can use legally.

Totally agree with g-unit and zered I never want to download software free because of the work put into it and also the above mentioned fines. I hate it whenever someone suggests pirated software to me. thankyou for your help.
