    500 budget for a new PC - suggestions?

    So, I've been told that for my birthday next month I can have 500 to put towards building a new PC
    Question is - what hardware to buy for a decent gaming rig?

    All suggestions welcomed!

    If you have some usable bits already, it is quite easy to build a decent i5 rig for 500-ish. So I guess the question is, what do you have already?

    Not much at the moment @Ric_, currently running an old Pent-D so most of the internals are gonna be out of date
    My old PCI Soundcard maybe of use and could use one of my 160GB sata disks for my OS (not going SSD just yet!) (Did have a 250GB one but it died on Christmas Eve )

    Been scouring Aria and got a bit of a list going - but struggling with a Graphic's card!

    If you're willing to switch to AMD (6 Core), I can get you a very decent rig for around 450?
