Gaming PC build $600 budget

Alright guys, I'm building my 2nd computer used for MMORPG games, such as Tera Online/ Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn. (Or maybe future graphic mmo games) The build's case must be NZXT H440 I would want to be able run those two main games on it's highest settings without any lags. I know mmo are going to lag but not the internet type of lag. performance wise. If anyone could recommend me a build with the case i suggest that would be fine. if the price is around $700 I'll be able to work around that price. AMD or Intel (i don't know much about processors) much mahalo guys

By limiting the case into a Prodigy with that kind of budget, I don't think you can expect much. If you however willing to change your case preference you might experience increase in graphical performance.

Here's the example

With the prodigy :

I know I'm limiting myself with that case, I may think of changing the case to the NZXT H440 Green/Black. I'm not to sure yet. Wanna try a build with Nzxt H440? I may try a budget of $700. But thanks for choice of build.

You are basically limiting yourself in parts and performance because of that case.. also amd is best for applications and programs that use more than 4 cores and intel is best for gaming as they have more performance per core

Thanks for your opinion, i don't need an OS. Though i am planning on changing the case to Nzxt N440 with a budget of $700 if you don't mind making another build i could go along with? Thanks!
