I can if you really want that case but you would only save $5. If your not going to overclock, then I can rebuild it cheaper.

Also a normal sized case isn't that big, and I can get a better one for a cheaper price.

hey thanks for your concern i think we should just build a pc worth 500 with good upgrade ability so taht we can buy the monitor too and just upgrade later.. what do you think? i also would like a matx for size issues is that ok vs atx?

I'm a bit confused. Do you mean a new system with a monitor included for $500? And yes matx is fine if you want to keep the size down.

Ah I see, sure we can do that but 8gb is worth it for a little more if your going to do gaming. Will have a new build soon :) .

Just finished. This is the closest I could do to your budget without sacrificing performance, but I did change some parts for better quality (take the case for example), so this new build is quite solid.
