Build Help: Gaming Computer for Around $500 with Operating System.

I am a Java programmer, and need a new compute because my old one is from 2005. I want to be able to play games such as Metro: 2033, but I don't care if the graphics quality is low. I also need at least 4GB of RAM for programming.

My computer monitor uses VGA currently, but I might get a new one with HDMI in the future.

I don't have a preference of AMD or Intel.

I did create a PC Parts Picker List, and want someone to review it and give me any help they can, as this is my first time building.

    A little over budget,but you can work to fit in your budget.And most importantly it has a potential to grow for gaming simply by adding a VGA card as(hd 6670) down the road.And don't forget it is more powerful config. from the start.
