Looking for a new PC build

I'm looking to spec out a new PC, but I'm unsure of what to get.

I'm not a heavy PC gamer, I'm fine with running games on low-medium settings.

My current Graphics card is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 520

My current processor is the AMD Athlon II x4 640 3.00 GHz

I have 4 GB of RAM.

An OS is not needed. My budget is around $450-$550.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated!
