I should be getting a job this summer that pays well, my parents already said I can spend the money I earn to do whatever I want, so I would like to build a computer. What's a cheap build for a gaming computer, roughly 500$?

I got my Anthlon X2 build for about 440$ last year, had to get a crap video card for the time though.. It might cost about 600$ for a Phenom X4 + A decent video card. I think Intel would be a little more expensive.

Sorry, I'm not really good with computers, but are there any cheaper mobo's? I could go for like a semi-good video card.

Now =/= Future, you might as well come back later as price go so cheap during Q2.
protip: 955 + 5770, 4gb ddr3, etc would roughly cost only $500.
Even cheaper if you have Microcenter, FRY's near you.

He ain't right. Those specs are at least $625, we just ordered the parts for the $500 computer I'm building for my friend. It looks more like a Phenom II X2 545, an XFX GTS 250, and 2 gb's 1600.

955 + 790X mobo combo -> [email protected] FRY's
Powercolor 5770 $129 after rebate http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10012284 , or Open box vapor x for $115
4gb ripjaws $ 90, or just $ 2gb for $40
Antec earthwatt 430, or Corsair 400w, $50
Samsung f3 $50
Cooler master centiurion 5, $50, or some cheap case. bough some nzxt case for $20
use flashdrive to install window.
you can go cheaper if you buy the X2 555 BE combo for $100, and have 50% unlocking the other two cores and get 4gb ram and still goes $500 roughly not including tax.

Haha, that's funny, because for just UNDER $500 (like, $5 or so) last September I got an Athlon II X4 620, 4870, 4GB DDR2, 500GB WDC Black.

You must just suck at finding deals.

I've got news for you, bud. My friend's new computer for 5 dollars more than yours is an equally powerful machine. 2 gb 1600 = 4 gb 800. Newer model mobo that supports ddr3 > some old mobo. GTS 250 almost as good as a 4870. Phenom x2 = athlon x4.

I got him a motherboard with 2 pcie 2.0 x16 slots, so in the future he can buy another video card. He has a bit of headroom, because of the highly efficient ocz 500w psu. Finally he has a 500 gb caviar black.

...You're retarded. 2GB 1600 DOES NOT EQUAL 4GB 800, that's fucking retarded logic. You don't fucking multiply the amount of gigabytes by the Mhz. Yeah, okay you have faster RAM, but you have A LOT less of it. I'm at 1.5GBs usage of RAM at idle, and whenever I'm doing anything it goes well above 2GBs, and if I'm playing a heavy game it goes above 3GBs, but doesn't often have to dip into the paging file. 2GBs 1600Mhz RAM is still only 2GBs, which is simply not enough for Vista/7 to operate optimally. And Phenom X2 ALSO CERTAINLY DOES NOT EQUAL Athlon X4. First of all, the only difference between the Phenom II and the Athlon II is that the Phenom II has a level 3 cache. The processor you bought has an L3 cache while mine does not, however mine still has TWO MORE CORES than yours, which is MUCH more significant than an L3 cache.

My motherboard isn't just "some old mobo," just because it's DDR2 doesn't make it old, buddy. I could have gotten a DDR3 mobo if I wanted to, but at the time DDR3 was a great deal more expensive for not that much better performance. And my motherboard also has 2 PCI-E x16 slots, that's not unusual at all. I have a highly efficient Corsair 650TX, which gives me a fuckload of headroom. I plan on keeping this buddy for pretty much any upgrade I ever do in the future.

So no, my computer is better than the one you got, and that was almost half a year ago, but nice try.
