Building first gaming PC, need help with parts.


I'm looking to put together a decent gaming PC for the first time. I was wondering if you guys could suggest some hardware with a $500 budget.

Here's an old post that I found; however, most of these parts are discontinued.

Processor: Intel Pentium G620 2.6 GHz - $69.99
Motherboard: MSI H61M-P21 (B3) - $57.99
Memory: Kingston 8GB (4 x 2GB) 1333 MHz Lifetime Warranty - $42.99
Hard drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" - $84.99
Graphics card: HIS Radeon HD 6750 1GB - $89.99
Power supply: Corsair CX430 - $44.99
