Gaming PC - Trying to keep it between $500-$600.

Hi guys. The PC I currently game on was one I bought from best buy that I have upgraded myself. I've added things like a new PSU, GPU, and RAM, but I don't feel comfortable picking my own parts as I've never built my own PC from scratch so I need some help.

I enjoy playing everything from indie titles to duke nukem 3D to GTA V so I want to be able to handle anything I throw at it on high. (I can live without being able to play on ultra settings.) I can also live with using a standard HDD right now, as I can upgrade that later. I would also like it to be pretty future proof so I can upgrade it a few years down the road. Finally, I'd like to stick to newegg if possible so I don't have to bother with different stores. No need for things like a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. but I will need a new copy of Windows. Thanks for your help!

Not a very good site IMHO. They'll almost never give you the AMD option for anything.
