<500$ US light gaming build.

I'm looking to build a tower for some casual gaming on relatively older and less graphically demanding games (gary's mod, everquest2, minecraft) at 1080p and hit 60ish fps at low-medium settings.

I already have OS disk (Win7 Pro 64bit), monitor, keyboard and mouse...so all I'm looking for is the tower.

I'm currently trying to get some multiplayer, online, goofy fun going with my daughter and have considered simply slapping a graphics card into my pre-built turd...but I don't even know if it could handle a graphics card on any level (power supply, processor, room in the case...etc). So I'd like to see what damage a full tower would do money-wise.

Big emphasis on UNDER 500$...the cheaper the better so long as it can run above the current 2-4 fps of our livingroom "junker" PC's integrated graphics.

Thanks in advance guys.

Yep...that looks about right.

No reason to go below 1tb on a HDD these days, perfect CPU for the usage and I would have some serious quality concerns if the components were any cheaper.

Also you posted the same Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card I've been researching, it seems to be a great sweet spot for price to performance.

Thanks for the reply sir...my component component compatibility knowledge is lacking these days and you're helping a great deal.
