500$ Gaming Build

Hey, I was wondering if some people would like to help me "build" a computer. I want to use this mainly for gaming but I do not have very much money and have no way of making too much (i'm 15). I have little knowledge of computer in wether they can actually run/work.
I was thinking an AMD based pc as they are generally cheaper (Phenom X4 II prefered), also the games I want to play would be: Cod4, Tf2, Mw2, and the Fallout series :) I'm guessing the 5670 would be able to run these decently. I don't need to play them on max settings, preferably a resolution higher than 800 by 600 which I am pretty used to playing on and ever lower :P
To add to that I don't need a moniter.

Btw I would like all the parts to be from newegg Canadian and don't need an os

    WOW Thanks, Although I think I am going to swap the 1.5tb for a 1tb but at 7200rpm :) Thanks a lot! I don't know anything at all when getting a power supply so if anyone else is reading this then I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks again ComputerNugget

    no problem bro, and i failed, i didnt notice that the hard drive i linked span at 5400 rpm. i was gonna put a WD blue 500gb but i wasnt sure if that would be enough space for you. and the power supply i linked is from a good line from what ive seen around the web.
