Hi guys, I'm looking to get into the pc gaming world, but I'm not sure about it and I don't want to be spending too much money on a new computer. I would like a computer that would run something like left 4 dead, gmod, counter strike, and maybe even skyrim at the higher settings and at 60 fps. I would also like to run some mods to the games. I probably won't be getting newer games. My budget is around 500$
Thanks!

+1 to the guy above me. Fantastic build, however if you can squeeze it, try to go for a Seasonic or XFX PSU. But the OCZ Fatality isn't that bad.

I picked OCZ cause right now they got crazy deals on all of their PSUs, like 60% promo...
