$600 is a pretty thin budget. I'm assuming you have a case, PSU, etc and just need a motherboard, cpu, and videocard. If so it's doable if you shop around enough.

I would say minimum cpu you should get is an i5 2500k, with a decent cooler so you can overclock. Video card wise it depends on what you want to play and at what resolution. You get what you pay for.

I'd try for a nvidia card myself, because there are always these random issues with ATI cards and certain games. They usually get patched, worked around by the community, but why risk it?

Good luck.
