I would say do a custom build. Even if its a lesser CPU on stock cooling you can overclock it some and same if you get a graphics card. 600 budget builds can be decent, especially in the future when you'll actually have the money =)

See Riley? That's why I suggested waiting until you save around $600-$800...

Remember, you need a copy of some form of Windows. You can't use an OEM copy on a new computer, legally anyways.
