It would be very hard to build a good gaming PC with $500-$600 depending on what games you play, your best bet is

G31 or cheap P43 motherboard
4gbs of G.SKill ram or patriot if you can get it really cheap
4650/4830/9800GT video cards
A decent 550w psu
antec 300/CM 690/590 case

Not to sure of the prices on that stuff but it would more then likely put you over your budget. but would probubly be alot better then that phenom build.
