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

Total Cost $500

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:

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---

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