Best pc (parts excluded) for under $500? Just tower

This includes the OS(preferably windows 7) but excludes monitor, mouse, and keyboard(Already have).

I would like to play games such as rust, dayZ, and then other games like portal 2, CSGO.

This would help me greatly, I have been searching on newegg, tiger direct, amazon, best buy, eBay, any other affordable website, and even walmart. Please help me find a decent pc for my limited budget.

Thanks

  1. not going to happen.
  2. This is probably the best prebuilt option http://www.amazon.com/CyberpowerPC-Gamer-Ultra-GUA880-Desktop/dp/B0089KDCIU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1395602953&sr=8-2&keywords=pc
    You wouldn't be able to handle rust and dayZ yet but with a gpu upgrade you could easily!
    For now it could handle portal 2 and csgo.

    But if you were to do a self build i think this would be a great option:

    I haven't chosen fans or small things such as thermal compound. Also, I couldn't find a cheap win 7 copy on part picker so here:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Microsoft-Windows-7-Professional-64-Bit-Full-Version-Coa-Product-Key-Life-time-/141126282751?pt=UK_Computing_Software_Software_SR&hash=item20dbc82dff
    Overall it should add up to $500 give or take $10!!!
