Already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Going to get the FX6300 ($110) and an R9 270x ($140). $60 Gigabyte motherboard, $70 8GB RAM, $40 case, $100 Windows 8.1, $35 EVO 2012 cooler, $50 600watt Corsair PSU. Total cost = $610. Not bad at all.

Seriously, the AMD FX6300 is a beast 6 core CPU. Pair that with a GTX 760 and you are in the game... those graphics will crush everything else at that price range...

The FX6300 and GTX 760 alone will cost you $280 (based on Newegg's prices). You've still got to throw in another $70 for a (decent) motherboard, $80 for RAM (unless you want to drop below 8 GB), and $60 for a hard drive (this is, of course, assuming you're willing to settle for an HDD). You'll probably be able to get your PSU for $50 after rebates, and if you're lucky, you'll get a case you don't mind looking at for $60.

The good news is that, at this point, you've got a functioning computer for $600. The bad news is that you're not done paying for stuff. It wouldn't be fair to charge for a monitor (after all, we're not charging for a TV), but a keyboard and mouse is most certainly fair game: $50. More if you want a set that's even halfway decent for gaming. If you're hooking your computer up to your TV, you'll also want a controller. That'll cost you $30 at the minimum, but a decent one'll be $40 - 50.

You've still got to pay for the elephant in the room: Windows. That's another $100, assuming you're going for an OEM license of 8.1. This is, of course, assuming you're not going with Linux...which is a fair assumption, if you want access to a large enough library of games to warrant the cost of your PC.

And for all this, you get a PC that, although most certainly better than the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One, is considered mid-to-low end by today's standards, and will be remarkably obsolete in a few years.

How will the machine be obselete in a few years? PC games are held back by consoles so that PC will be fine at the very least until the new consoles come. He wont be able to run it on high-settings but that's still better than us.

I'd go back to PC gaming if I wasn't so lazy.I want to use a controller and not a mouse and KB which isn't an option in FPS games.

People forget that pc games might look better if you have a strong rig but games are optimized for consoles and often more reliable. A console is superior then an equal level pc just because of optimization.
