New PC build for $500-$600. Only need crucial parts

Hello, I'm currently tying to build my a gaming computer a computer for his birthday. I'm looking to spend around 450-600 dollars.

I already have a Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Operating System, CPU Cooling Fan, DVD Drive, and a 200 Gigabyte Hard drive.
And I might already have a power supply and case. I believe the case is an older Mid ATX or full.
I need something that can easily run Windows 7 and can play games extremely smoothly.

If you can help me and list some parts that would fit my budget, I'd definitely appreciate it.
I'm trying to find a build that doesn't include that parts listed above, and also one that doesn't have the parts above but has the case and power supply.

If you can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

    I'm not sure exactly what kind of PS and HDD they are, but I'm pretty sure they should be upgraded. The case is very beat up, so I think I should just get a new one. I already have Windows Ultimate.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much looking for the biggest bang for the buck.
    I might be able to go up to around the 700 mark
  8. I am planning on upgrading my GPU when i get the chance but i got it a while back from a friend for cheap and it works great for me and i can't complain with it but it is outdated and i am looking into some GPU's at the moment but for now i can play crysis on pretty high setting with no lag and have pretty nice FPS again i can't complain for the price but this was my budget build so it's not supposed to be a high end 500 GPU theres youtube videos of my graphics card playing games on high settings and getting good fps check them out but the res of the parts are genuine budget parts that i really like the way they perform

    When did you build your computer? Do you think the parts are cheaper now?
  10. Some could be i havent really checked but i built my computer a year ago but i have since then added a new mobo (the one i listed) and i added more ram an then the new processor so some parts definitely could have had a price drop i didnt buy them all from one site because i shopped around and looked for the best deal but the sites i used were-
    Microcenter.com
    Amazon.com
    Newegg.com
    I think it was PcParts.com or something close to that so shop around never get from one site
