Looking for a gaming PC around $500

Have a new WD black 1TB HD already. No peripherals needed. Budget is flexible.

Main purpose is to teach my nephew how to build his own PC. Even though I built mine, I used you guys for the parts suggestions, so once again, I am tapping that well.

Games he plays is LOL and WOW. Not much else I think.

Really appreciate the builds! I knew you guys wouldn't let me down.

Both look like they meet the reqs, and I am sure he would love either. Going to let him decide himself.

Might open the wallet a bit more to get a small SSD in there, but I am sure i can pull it off :)
