    I figured I might as well come to the experts here at MyDigitalLife for some guidance and support on finding parts for my new PC build. I'm working with a budget of $500. I've looked at Newegg and Amazon, trying to find the best deals, but I'm pretty lost as to what grounds to start on. I'd like to be able to run Windows 7 64-bit and play recent games like Diablo III and DotA 2 at max or recommended settings with no issues. I am excluding monitor, sound system, keyboard, and mouse from this build because I already have each of those items.

    So, can someone help me find parts at a good price? :) So far I only know what case I want, which is this one here:
    (Replace [DOT] with .)

    I still need: Mother board, HDD, PSU, Graphics card, Processor, RAM... Am I missing anything else? I think that's it.
