Budget Gaming PC

Most of my time will be spent on the internet with occasional gaming but I don't plan on playing anything serious so no SLI/Crossfire. 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 currently have just gotten a list of parts thanks to "gkay09"which totaled up to $572.88 but i kind of wanted to keep it $500-$550 since i thought it was possible to be done. What do you all think of this build since i'm new to building my own system? If anyone sees any parts on this list that you have a better alternative for please feel free to tell me.
