Hey everyone. I currently use a laptop and lets just get to the point... it sucks. I don't need anything really simple like I said in the title, just a cool budget build. Thanks in advance!

Budget: About $600, you can go more if you have too... Obviously not to much hehe

Location: USA, Texas

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Minor gaming, we're talking like Minecraft or something and VERY simple rendering

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers if Monitor doesn't have them.

Operating System required: None

Can add a gpu like 750ti or r7 370 for around $130 later on for better gaming power but the i3 will play Minecraft on its own

Had to downgrade some things like the hard drive and CPU to get a good Video Card. If possible, you may want to spend a little more money getting a better Storage HDD/SSD or a better CPU like an Intel Core i3.
