Budget Pc build

Hey everyone. Im looking to build a pc on a close to console budget. Im not looking to play the most demanding games out there now such as battlefield 4 crysis 3 ect. I want something that can run games such as Dota 2, Burnout paradise, Modern warfare 2, Maybe some black ops, Minecraft, and I would like to get gta 5 when it finally does come out for the pc. I want to play all my games at 60 fps and willing to give up ultra graphics for this. Im willing to spend $500-$600 in this budget. Im also not looking to overclock on this computer or record videos. I just want it for gaming and skype with friends. I mostly play Dota 2 which isnt that demanding of a game so I dont want to spend a lot on a computer. Do not include the OS or peripherals for this build. This is just going to be a basic gaming computer that will last me 2 years.

Before anyone mentions the PSU being overkill. The CX600M was cheaper than the CX500M so why not :D.

 

On to the build. No OC'ing on a budget makes the I3 the best choice without a doubt. I got Z97 for potential upgrading iinto broadwell. RAM and HDD are standard. Most games you listed do not require a beefy video card except GTA 5 hence the R9 280 (Should make medium a cinch and possibly high but that depends on CPU stress). Case is a good one for little money and I already explained the PSU.

RIG: I7-4790k @ 4.5GHz | MSI Z97S SLI Plus | 12GB Geil Dragon RAM 1333MHz | Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970 (1550MHz core/7800MHz memory) @ +18mV(Maxed out at 1650/7800 so far) | Corsair RM750 | Samsung 840 EVO 120GB, 1TB Seagate Barracuda | Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 (Closed) | Sound Blaster Z                                                                                                                        Getting: Noctua NH-D15 | Possible 250GB Samsung 850 Evo                                                                                        Need a console killer that actually shits on every console? Here you go (No MIR/Promo)

This is why you should not get an FX CPU for ANY scenario other than rendering on a budget http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/286142-fx-8350-r9-290-psu-requirements/?p=3892901 http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/266481-an-issue-with-people-bashing-the-fx-cpus/?p=3620861
