Build me the best gaming computer (only mobo, GPU, CPU, PSU) for $500. I have a good HDD, RAM, case etc.

I'm open for boith AMD and Intel. Nothing overkill, just something that will get the job done.

Thanks!

Hmm I guess he would potentially need a power supply. You could get an 8320 with that setup, though.

I would recommend spending a bit more and getting a corsair TX series rather than CX, but CX will do.
