I should say that I've got a budget of around $500 for this.

The iBuyPower Gamer power 528 is looking pretty good to me at the moment with these components: Athlon II x 4 620 and the ATI Radeon HD 4670.

I thought I'd put this to the wisdom of this forum. Is this a good combo for gaming?

Thanks!

the Athlon II X4 is plenty, the 4670 is good for lower screen resolution gaming (ie 720, 1280x720, or lower)

make sure to pick out a good psu , mobo and case, some of the default form i buy power is crappy and their liquid cooling kit is usually crappier than even the default air cooler (only slightly cooler and they use the system fan instead of an extra fan in the radiator) try to get some other cooler if you can (even stock, i would recommand a dark knight but looking at your spec it seems impossible)

The X4 620 will be too much for the HD4670. The best deciding factor for a CPU/GPU combo is your monitor size and its resolution. What do you have?
