I'm building a new rig just for Call of Duty and watching videos/movies. My budget is $500.
Here's what I've come up with... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/i8Tg
Any suggestions?

Looks good, but wireless =/= gaming.

Forgot to mention that I'm buying a controller for gaming, so I'd only use the keys for Minecraft or something.

:non: 

why not?

keys RAWK!
if you haven't used them then yeah it is a pain but games play better when you get use to it. not mention you're use to low FPS with a console; PC gaming is faster and a mouse is 100% better for looking and turning.

get out of your console gaming thinking and do it the way it was meant to be.
