Looking for a $500 Gaming Desktop. Don't require a graphics card 2014

Hello,
Im looking to buy a gaming desktop with a budget of $500. I already have all the accessories I need and a monitor, I was also given a Nvidia GTX 580 and i'm hoping I can create a system that wont hold it back. I don't know a whole lot about this subject so any help would be appreciated.
Thankyou

  1. Would you be able purchase the components and build the PC yourself (it's not as hard as it seems - plenty of tutorials)? It will work out A LOT cheaper than going to a shop and buying one

    If you've been given a graphics card, I suppose you *could* always buy a pre-built Dell/HP, etc, and simply put in the graphics card and a new Power Supply. That would be easier to do than building from scratch. Of course, there may still be a few issues here and there....

    Here's a better option

    Sorry it doesn't come with an OS. I can try and squeeze one in if you'd really like....

    I may be able to give it a shot, How about getting a computer technician to do it. Or would that cost an unreasonable amount of money?
  6. They will charge a lot of money for that. Would probably be cheaper to do bemused_fred option and buy a dell PC and put the GPU in there.

    How long do you think it would take me to build a computer from scratch like that? Also I was told you cant change dell computers from standard, obviously I was misinformed
  8. You can do it within a couple of hours easy. Have a look at some tutorials online. here's one:

    You will be able to with Dell, as long as it's all compatible.

    You can do it, but it'll void the warranty. And you'll need to double-check the parts are compatible.

    Do you even know how links work? This is my build, this is yours. LRN2click.
  14. I might sound like a total noob here but to be honest I kinda am. Would this case work or is it overkill I just thought that maybe because it looked cool it might be better :/ The guy who is giving me the graphic card is selling it. Here is a link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147107

    Looks like a pretty good case to me. If they're selling it cheap, go for it!
