New build for my brother

I'm looking to build a nice little gaming system for my brother. Nothing over the top but I want something that will do well on airplane simulators and normal games. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should buy? I have a budget of 600 dollars (not including the monitor).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions - I don't mind going a bit over budget (50$)if necessary.

Thanks again

What currency are you using? do you need an OS included in the build?
