Does not include monitor, KB, mouse, or OS. You're not going to get all that stuff for $500 unless you buy a used PC on craigslist or something.

A gaming PC isn't really worth it if you're only going to spend $500 (if this includes things like Windows and a monitor). You should at the very least put in $750.

go with an AMD build FX 8 core or six core and motherboard...usually half the price of intel and if you are doing light gaming...consider an APU chip...

This build comes to $501. Have to cut corners but it includes the OS with the price (can switch to windows 7 if you prefer). Obviously not the best of the best, but it's within the budget.
