My System Specs

Default Make Me A Build <$500 !?

I don't think i7 is needed. Intel only too (Edit: I now accept AMD aswell) since we already have an i7 and i5 in the house but we don't have any 3rd gen ones.

I don't need too much graphics power but I want something that will last and is fast.
Infact, I might not even need a seperate GPU, the PC will mostly be used for you tube and ocasional gaming like League Of Legends, Starcraft, and San Andres

For the 500 dollars, exclude pricing for Hardrive, PSU, Optical Drives, mouse keyboard because I have those already.

Also note, I have DDR2 Ram (2 sticks 512mb each) so its up to you if you want to include those and get more DDR2 ram or just jump up to DDR3 with the new architectures.

Build: i7-920, EVGA GTX 285, XFX X58i Extreme Edition , 2GB x 3 DDR3 - Patriot Viper, ThermalTake M9 V1000series, Ultra LSP 650w, Western Digital 500GB @7200rpm,
