    Hi martinjr15,

    Up your budget by $100 and you can get a cheap yet powerful gaming build---

    $500 Gaming PC System Components---
    CPU Intel Celeron G530 (Sandy Bridge): 2.4 GHz, 2 MB Shared L3 Cache $50

    CPU Cooler Intel boxed heat sink/fan $0

    Motherboard Gigabyte GA-H61MA-D3V: LGA 1155, Intel H61 Express $60

    RAM Pareema 4 GB (2 x 2 GB) DDR3-1333 MD313C80809L2 $20

    Graphics ECS NGT560TI-1GPI-F1 GeForce GTX 560 Ti $210

    Hard Drive Western Digital WD3200AAKX: 320 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive $75

    Case Rosewill R101-P-BK MicroATX Mid Tower $30

    Power Supply Antec VP-450 450 W $38

    Optical Drive LG 22x DVD Burner SATA Model GH22NS90B-OEM $17

    This is what Tom's Hardware recommends for Budget Gaming Build.

    The good place will be under "Systems>New Build"
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-31-322.html

    But it's no big deal. People will help you anyway. Look at these too:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/332962-31-recommended-builds-price
    It offers several price options & links you directly to newegg.

    Yes mate! I have listed one below which is a lot cheaper but yet it is enough powerful for gaming at 720p. It is also much efficient too and can run on just a 400w PSU.

    HIS iCooler HD 7750 1GB GDDR5---$100. After rebate, $90---
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161403

    What is the main purpose of the PC? I mean what you want to do on your PC?

  6. You have a PSU you mentioned so here you go a bit over budget though PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Pentium G630 2.7GHz Dual-Core Processor ($67.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: ASRock H61M/U3S3 Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($59.99 @ Newegg)

    (Prices include shipping and discounts when available.)
  7. All of the builds above are good but they are all over the budget.I suggest replacing the videocard with this one
    http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-GeForce-Mini-HDMI-Graphics-60XMH6HS3HMW/dp/tech-data/B003VKGZSM/ref=de_a_smtd
    Its almost as good as an HD 6850 yet it costs 40% less
