    Is this just strictly gaming or are you looking to edit stuff as well?

    Motherboard: Asus Z170-P ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($89.99 @ Amazon)
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($33.99 @ Amazon)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($47.49 @ OutletPC)
    Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 4GB Video Card ($163.98 @ Newegg)

    Total: $604.30

    Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available


    CPU: A lot of people said it was the best budget CPU currently and seeing that its part of the new "Skylake" line of Intel processors, it definitely is the newest for sure. Benchmarks are quite good and doesn't seem to bottleneck any high end cards as well. An overall budget friendly CPU.

     


    CPU Cooler: Pretty standard one for budget builds. It gets the job done without breaking the bank. You won't be editing anything either so your CPU shouldn't be under heavy loads anyways. Should keep your CPU at a stable temp when gaming.

    Motherboard: ASUS motherboards rock so I went ahead and got one for this build. Great price and has everything you need. Really simple setup as well!

    Memory: 8GB of RAM for gaming is enough. If you were editing and recording, I would suggest going up to 16GB. Many people say anything above 16GB is just overkill. Anyways, I chose you a reliable brand - the Corsair LPX DDR4 RAM and runs at 2400. Definitely mid tiered.

    Storage: Went with the Western Digital Blue 1TB. Western Digital has been known for their fast HDD speeds and with a 5 year warranty, its a really good buy. 1TB should last you a very long time.

    Video Card: Looked down the list of GTX from lowest price to highest. This one was the first best one that came up. Great price and the card is a 4GB version as opposed to the 2GB version that is around that price range. Gigabyte makes killer cards so you're in good hands.

    Case: A great reliable case. You can't go wrong with it. Lots of space and you can find tons of tutorials on YouTube with this case so if you're ever stuck while building it, there's help everywhere.

    PSU: A great brand with a history of fantastic PSU's. Its semi-modular so that will come really in handy when you're building it up. Good reviews and great feedback.

    Good luck!
