So after much research around the internet, I came up with a list of parts I wish to build my first budget gaming PC. Now since this IS my first build, i'm not sure how well I did. So I ask you guys, do you think I did good with a budget of $500? Here is the list:

dvd: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002YIG9AQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_4...
hdd: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005CT56R6/ref=aw_d_var_2...
cpu: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005LLBBSS/ref=mp_s_a_1_1...

ram http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0057Q4AGW/ref=redir_mdp_...

So what do you think? Any suggestions?

Looks good to me, but i'd find the Modular edition to the Corsair CX500M, although that PSU looks alright. Try to get a 7850 GPU if you can but otherwise it's okay but not very futureproof. Might wanna get an i3 or if you are on a budget get an AMD CPU like the FX6300 (I think that's what it was called). That case is good value and not bad but if you can the 200R is not only easy to build but has a lot of features and is from a reputable brand, but when it comes to cases Corsair and Cooler Master are pretty close in my opinion.
