Best Gaming PC For $500 Canadian

Hi,
I'm looking into building a gaming PC, and was wondering if there's any suggestions of a build for $500 Canadian, with Windows 8.1 included. I would like to have an Nvidia GPU as I play a lot of Batman Arkham. It would be a huge help if the store you guys use in your recommendations was Newegg.ca (Newegg Canada). Thanks, all help is appreciated.

    Best to get a AMD GPU at this price range.

    The 250 would be better than whatever NVIDIA card you can get at this price point.
