Is this a good $500 gaming pc?

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/powert987/saved/tmZ2FT I need opinions for this build because I am planning to buy this. I will be using a HDD from another pc. Any changes?

It looks good the only thing I would change is the RAM from 1 stick of 8GB to 2 4GB RAM. So you can take advantage of the dual channels. If you are leaving open for a second 8GB eventually you should be buying those in pairs anyway because they are tested together to be sure they are compatable.

Looks good apart from the 2 stick of RAM thing.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/powert987/saved/tmZ2FT I fixed the ram issue and I put a motherboard that's cheaper but has the same features.
