$500 Semi-Gaming PC ($600 Maybe)

I have started working this summer so I finally have started getting money to get a new computer. Most of my time will be spent on the internet with occasional gaming but I don't plan on running anything serious. I should have all the money by the end of this month so that's when i'll start shopping. I don't have any preferences on brands but I would like to buy the parts from Newegg. I have a Mouse, Keyboard, 17 Inch Moniter, and Speakers from my current Dell 4600. Right now my resolution is at 1024x768 but it can go up 1280x1024. I won't be doing any overclocking or using SLI/Crossfire. I currently have an Optical Drive, Hard Drive, and Case in mind but feel free to suggest something else if you feel it's better. So I need a Motherboard, a CPU (i'm looking at a Dual Core but if I can get a Triple Care in my budget then i'll buy it), RAM, a Video Card (Must have atleast 512 MB), and a PSU.

    PSU - OCZ 500W -> If this combo is still available by the time you make the purchase, then get it as you get a free DVD...maybe you can sell it somewhere...

    Graphics card -
    HD 5750

    But the HD 5770 is about ~$30 more and is well worth it if you upgrade your monitor later on...and also it will still be within budget...

    CASE - That Antec 300 is a good choice...but check out the Antec 300 Illusion too as sometime it would come with free shipping

    And here I have not included any combos as they tend to change ...so look out for those too...
