Building new game computer need advice

Ok so i'm trying to build a decent gaming computer for a friend who has around 500$ to spend. I was thinking of getting him a i5 processor but after i tallied everything up from case, motherboard, cpu, ram, vcard, cddrive, psu, it was closer to 650$. Just looking for some advice on a good build closer to 500$ that'll last some time, thanks in advance.
