I am looking into building my first PC, I'm on a budget and can't spend much more then 600. I will need windows 10 and keyboard and muse, any help/tips would be very helpful thanks.

I was thinking about getting the AMD FX 6300 instead of the Intel i3, which one would you say performs better for gaming

For gaming, the i3 performs much better.

Here's my take on it. You can refer to my build guide for more information about each parts (I posted link to reviews): https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/fCZxFT/the-budget-gaming-pc-an-in-depth-guide-for-choosing-the-right-parts

You have a very good graphics card for this price range. Should be able to achieve over 30 - 40 FPS at 1920x1080 high/ultra settings in most game even recent one.

How does the Intel I3 preform with gaming.
