I have a $600 at the moment. I plan on adding a graphics card later on but at the moment, what should I improve? Once I get the graphics card, I plan on gaming, video editing, and dual booting into Windows or Linux depending on what I want to do. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ChristianMX/saved/#view=BcRGXL

You can do more for $600; For example, getting on the latest 6th Generation Skylake platform
