I finally have been able to save up and have some extra cash so I was hoping you guys could give me some build suggestions for the best gaming performance for 600usd. I can maybe stretch it a tiny bit more if it's going to make a significant difference in performance or future upgradablility. Some suggestions for a keyboard/mouse and a dual monitor set up would be appreciated as well(they aren't included in the budget)
