Given 6-700 dollars do you think you could make a decent gaming computer? If so, what would you add to it?

Depends on type of games you are planning on playing.
Some games require a lot of horsepower, while others require less.

The first thing I would check is to see what resolution you plan on using for gaming. Basically 1920x1080, or higher.
The higher the resolution the more powerful your video card(s) need to be to achieve the same frame rate.

Secondly I would check if you like to build your own or not? If you don't know much about hardware etc.. you might be better off buying a unit than trying to assemble your own.

And there is a lot of other things to consider.
In the end it depends on what you see as a decent gaming computer.
For me a decent one would be around $1,500 to $2,000, and that would be just for the tower. (No monitor, speakers etc...)
