He's not looking at US dollars,but Canadian.
And you chose the gtx 150 ti.Still that build is over max budget in Canadian dollars..

About as good as could make it with that budget,

Yes I know how to change the currency :) .But its only over by 40-50 dollors and that isnt that much over seeing some builds people suggest where they go 60+ over. :)

And if you really wanted to save just change it to a Pentium G

But CAD prices are not always a direct corrilation of USD prices + exchange rate. Your build is $630 CAD, and some of the components are really not the best "bang for your buck" in Canada.



Why would anyone recommend a Dual Core Pentium in 2016/17 in all but the most basic home use system?



OP, assuming you have some form of storage you could reuse, I'd look to something like this:

It's not pretty, and cuts some corners (cheaping out on the case & motherboard), but gives you a solid performer.

MERGED QUESTION
Question from ViciousWafflez : "Looking for 600$ USD PC"

What I'm looking for is a PC at the price of 600$ USD. The parts that I am mainly interested in is an i5 and a GTX 1060. If that cannot work I would at least what an Intel and GTX build.

I just want to be able to play a ton of games at 60fps 1080p or even 720p. And I'd also like to play some hardcore modded Skyrim.

My Lan box uses a gtx 750ti and Pentium G and most games run fine if your not using MSSA and AA
