hey everybody..this is my first post... :bounce:  :hello: 

I was wondering if somebody could help me out with assembling a computer (mainly the cpu) for 500$... My old CPU is crap... here are the current specs

RAM -- 1 gb ( know this is *** ) :??: 
Hard-disk memory -- 160 gb [ this is *** too... :(  ] :( 
No graphic card
XP service pack 2 (professional)


IF some person out there could please help me out... i need new components for the PC for under 500 bucks...
this would include
1) a new mother board ( btw AMD or Intel i don know ...you tell me..) :whistle: 
2) a new graphic card
3) ram memory
4) a good operating system ( i don know which one of these is better VISTA or XP or windows 7)
5) other stuff required for the mother-board and the cpu ( stuff like cooling fan... etc..)


P.S i am a hardcore gamer and love making stuff on ADOBE aftereffects ..so i need a good ram speed and a decent graphic card to play the top-notch games. and dont worry about the hard disk... ill take care of that
and also PLEASE BE A LITTLE SPECIFIC..... CAUSE I GOTTA SHOW THE STUFF YOU WRITE TO MY DAD FOR APPROVAL..... and also write down the prices...

PLEASE HELP ME OUT.... this is urgent .... :(  :(  :( 

THANK you
