Hello! So, I was trying to put together a build for my friend who is looking to join PC Gaming. His budget is around $600. He already has a mouse and keyboard, monitor, and speakers. Here's what I put together: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/NEWmanofwar618/saved/26OK
I imagine there are some flaws in it. I've not built a PC from scratch myself, rather upgrading a prebuilt. Any switches you can recommend would be great.

Doesn't need an OS? I would spend the extra money and get a 1tb, 500gb way too small for my game collection.

I believe I can get Windows 7 either from his existing license or from someone I know for free. Otherwise, I will have to add the extra money there though.

Logisys PSU = big, big no-no. Just get a case without a PSU (Logisys is fine there if you don't mind a cheapo piece of junk) and a separate, good-quality PSU.

How about this, with the revised case and PSU: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1oy98

Much better PSU selection. Also I didn't notice this, purchase 2x4gb sticks instead of 1x8. Unless you plan on running 16gb later. Dual channel will work better.

Edit: Wow that is a crappy motherboard. Single channel, only one expansion slot LOL. Hope he doesn't need to add any cards...
