ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Its been a long time since I have gotten my nose dirty in the component field and really dont have much of a clue as to what it takes to make a decent gaming pc anymore. Was hoping someone could give me an effective configuration for the budget i have posted.
Oh, by the way. Im going to buy one tomorrow (I went to the store today to pick out the parts) and I got a total of around $570. Compusa has some good deals. Corsair 4gb 1600mhz RAM ($100), thermaltake m9 case ($60), a USB 3.0 capable am3 board for $90 (gigabyte), athlon ii x3 440 ($75), a GTS 250 ($100), ULTRA 650w PSU ($60, dont know much about ultra but they have lifetime warrantys) and a seagate barracuda 500gb for $50. Think thats all of it.
