if $600 is your budget then you can do way better from ecollegepc especially since you don't mind it doesn't have a graphics card.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

Damn, I don't even know what I wrote.

I mean

You will need a better CPU for dolphin.

Also why don't you save your money from the Xbox One and Ps4 then add it to your PC.
