I don't mind attempting a build, but every PC that I attempt to build with those specs comes out wayy over $500 (with just parts). I also need an OS, which adds to the cost. I don't need a high end gaming PC, just something to play games on occasion. It will primarily be used as an HTPC. What do you guys recommend for around the $500 price point with similar specs? I'd like to stick with Intel processors and I like the Silverstone Grandia GD04 case or something similar. I know that case will up the price of the build, but I don't want a computer tower sitting in my entertainment center.
