Budget gaming PC around $500

Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: Near $500 (willing to go higher for a build that will last significantly longer)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: moderate gaming, internet, various home uses.

Parts Not Required: monitor, speakers, mouse, keyboard

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: none

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: none, as long as they work together and don't take a genius to use

Overclocking: Maybe - don't really know if it is worth it

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: My 5 year old pc is a brick now and I would like a new pc, I am not a hardcore gamer, just like my games to run somewhat smoothly on widescreen resolutions. I am planning on purchasing Diablo 3, so that would be an example of the toughest game my pc might have to run.
