Hey guys, im new to this forum and PC building in general. I find myself becoming obsessed with the PC building community as im having a lot of fun choosing my components. Anyways... I have three builds i cannot choose from. The sole reason for this purpose for this rig is gaming only, nothing else. With that being said, i'm not looking to play the latest 2017 graphically intensive games, only games such as Fallout 4, Overwatch, BO3, etc.

Feel free to suggest any components that should be replaced and explain why(keeping in mind my budget -- $500-600). Again, just looking for a steady 60 fps 1080p gaming experience on high-ultra settings(if possible). Here's the builds:

Build #1: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ftmP9W
Build #2: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/nVJMXH
Build #3: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/LNqsjc

I cant decide.. im thinking maybe i will mix and match with components from all three builds, cause clearly there are strengths and weaknesses in each build. If you guys could take time out of your day to point in me the right direction, i'd really appreciate it; thank you.

The first and last build are both pretty good. If you wanted to save a little money, get the newest kaby lake pentium, the g4560. Would also recommend an SSD and HDD. Wouldn't recommend an fx-6300 at this point tho. Overall great builds. Would choose 1 or 3.

Honestly, I would go with this build. You can try to upgrade to the RX 470, but honestly, I would get to the GTX 1060.
