Why Are You Upgrading:

Been 5 years on each computer in my little gaming room , just about to upgrade my personal computer ( thanks for the help again ! ) This is for my girlfriend and any people who come over and want to play !! Main concern is future proofing when it's time to upgrade in a few years !

The fun of building a computer is looking for parts and getting good deals on them so I'll leave that up to you. But for $500~ range, that is as good as it gets on parts.
