Help Build a PC?

I know these threads get posted often so I've come to just trust the fellas on this site. My budget isn't extraordinary either because of stuff at home and uni but I do have $500-$650 to blow on entertainment. I've always owned laptops and gamed on this Lenovo z50, which isn't terrible I guess.

is this a viable choice? http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Revolt-H300

I know, I know, prebuilts are usually overpriced and its typically the norm to buy each part individually when they're on sale and whatnot but I don't really know where to start.

Any tips are gladly welcomed.

EDIT: Alternatively I found this https://pcpartpicker.com/b/RT6XsY

like i said, that takes a grown fucking man right there....stay classy
That prebuilt one is kind of bad and gaudy as fuck lol.

The PC Part Picker one looks fine to me, but I'd switch the graphics card to a 960 with 4GB of VRAM. I didn't even know that the 750 was a thing, but I upgraded from a 760 that was struggling like two years ago, so I can't imagine the 750 would have much longevity.

Thanks, I'll look into it. I found some other builds on pcpartpicker that I might just blend together for the best parts. I don't need anything crazy as most of the new multiplats I just buy on PS4 anyway.

If you're taking parts from different PC Part Picker lists, put them all into a new list first; it automatically checks to make sure all of the parts are compatible with one another.

$30ish more and he could get a RX 480. 960 isnt really a bad card either, definitely go with a 4gb tho. I have one in my daughters PC and it works pretty well.
