I've been out of the loop for a while, so what does $600 get you in 2013? This isn't for me.... So far I know the basics are about: $27 - 4GB DDR3 1600 $55 - 500W PSU $60 - 500GB HDD $20 - DVD drive $35 - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO $30 - Cougar Spike MicroATX case $10 - extra 120mm fan (optional) That leaves about $350 to mess around with for the CPU+Mobo+GPU. It looks like a GTX 650 Ti or AMD 7850 would be ideal. The case I found was $30 and it's MicroATX, so preferably that form factor would be best for this.
