I am building a desktop for gaming. I want to spend around 500-600$ . I do not know a lot about computers and part performances. I need to know a build that will run games on a minimum of medium settings and can be upgraded later.

Assuming that you are going to be buying the OS, this is what I came up with.

CPU: Intel Pentium G860 3.0GHz Dual-Core Processor ($67.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: EVGA 120-SB-E672-KR Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($54.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Mushkin Essentials 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($27.98 @ Outlet PC)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($58.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card ($139.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($28.38 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Logisys 575W ATX12V Power Supply ($30.98 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Sony AD-7280S-0B DVD/CD Writer ($25.97 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($91.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $527.25

It's easily upgradable in the future by crossfiring the Radeon HD 6850 and getting a better CPU.

The OP already said that he won't be needing an OS.

That PSU seems a bit too cheap. Are you sure it's reliable?

PSU is fine, it has lots of good reviews on Newegg.
