I need a 600 dollar gaming PC that can play most games but the build needs to include a monitor with it.

great build. but i'd swap the 380 for a gtx 960. same vram only it uses less power and its a bit better in benchmarks. See http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html for benchmarks on CPU's and GPU's.

That means little for the real world.

Not too bad for noise and power consumption. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTpNZEW31G0&t=3m42s

A little bit better or similar performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESeFXwGfBsI

Much better performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTpNZEW31G0&t=6m0s

Yeah, well without watching fully both those video's but reading the description it seems (cause im not 100%) that they chose the lesser 2GB version of the GTX and pitted it against the 380 4GB version, instead of using both cards 4GB versions since the 960 has one also. so it does seem a bit unfair of a test imo. but i've watched some other video's and read some reviews on both and it does seem like the R9 380 is the better over all option. which is fine by me cause i love AMD and wish them success lol.

The middle one includes both a 2gb and 4gb 380.

Ya that I saw, but I was just wondering if it includes the 4GB 960?

with this you can play most games, and still have a later-on upgrade path of adding a 1TB hard drive as well as upgrading the CPU to a 4690k with a Cryorig H7 cooler

You need a z97 mobo and a way better power supply if ya add the 4690k and do any over clocking.

Nah its fine up to 1.250v, I personally have setup 3 systems with 4690k's on h97 mobos and h7 coolers, works great for the price so long as you keep the voltages as low as possible with modest oc's (4.2-4.5)

Not all CPUs are the same many require different amount of voltages thats why the z97 is recommended plus its just a better platform for the gaming hardware in general.
