For the motherboard I suggest the ASUS M4A77TD.

AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz is a great CPU and with any luck the ASUS will unlock the 4th core. This combo gets you a 5770 for not much more than a 5670 would cost.

I got you an Antec case with 430 watt PSU with a dvd burner combo deal. This is an amazing deal and the BP430 Watt is the same my son uses for his XFX5770.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 is very good memory.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Currently the best deal on HD's is a WD 500GB blue for $40. Dont forget the $15 promo code.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total will be $500.90 plus shipping. There are a good amount of rebates on these deals also.

the one I posted DOES support USB3.0 and SATA 3, but the chipset is last generation (770 with 710 Southbridge).

Elbert & I basically suggested the same board from AS Rock and ASUS. gkay suggested a 785, a similar micro-atx board.
