Super Budget Computer! Help?

I searched the forums and put together this budget computer for my friend. He wants to play games with it i believe.

Just looking for some input on parts and if there are better options out there for the money. His budget is $500 max and he needs a OS. He is planning to hook his computer up to a TV through HDMI. Pretty sure he has a standard like 30" tv not a ginormous 70".

Thanks in advance!

  1. Its a computer made of decent parts, so it wont blow up on him.
    Though a powerful gaming rig it is not, wouldn't expect a lot of performance from it.

    If its still in budget, upgrade the graphics to this.

    It will be better, but again wont be a powerhouse.
