Below $500 Amazon Build

Okay, I'm currently looking for a new build. I am wanting to buy all the parts off of Amazon with some good performance for about $460. But if you gotta go over that by around $20 that's completely fine. But I rather keep it in the $460 range.

Must include peripherals. - Mic - Keyboard - Optical Mouse

Other - Anti-Static Wristband

Some games I'd like to be able to play at 30-60 frames smoothly... (Doesn't matter if its the lowest settings, the lowest resolution... I just wanna be able to run it at a smooth FPS.) - CS:GO - Battlefield 2 - Project Reality (It's an independent mod.) It requires about 516 mb of video memory - Wargame Airland Battle - TF2 - Dirty Bomb - Rome Total War (Original, not the newer.)

I currently do not have any spare parts, so I'll need all parts to be listed. PSU, GPU, CPU, Case, blah blah.

I rather have a case that has the fans that come with it, and I don't plan to overclock so no need for a CPU cooler. And I want a somewhat good CPU for the budget, the GPU is important too but I hope you can do something with that.

Aside from that, I'd like some room to upgrade in the next month or so, so maybe a 500 Watt PSU.

First of all, dude you were a little bit greedy, you want all thing you could get with very limited amount of money, but that was human

So I could go with all things except that super gaming mic and an OS (use steamOS?) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/VrGnP6
