well with that price your guna have to change change the gpu down the road because u won't be able to aford a powerful one now. You would have to go amd phenom or i3 and it would be cutting it really close. See if you can save up a bit more b4 you want to build. A 650 budget would be much easier to work with.

PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

total $496.95

EDIT:Forgot PSU.

Because of the motherboard there isn't any real upgrade path but at your budget you may as well get the best parts now.

If you want a more futureproof pc swap the cpu and motherboard with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you want better gaming performance you can get the 1st motherboard the i3-2120 and a 560ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

if you include the os in the price you can get the g860 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and a 6850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

there are plenty of options.
