You have the Monitor already or you need to buy that as well? Kinda hard to build a new rig with $500 but it can be done- Would you consider buying used parts?............Also at certin tests ( Most ) tests the Amd A10 6800 ( Richland ) will beat the Phenom up pretty bad, plus seeing your on a budget the Internal Gpu schould help you get by with gaming in the mean time- Until you have enough for a Dedicated video card.

Yes, I already have a Monitor. The only games I really play are League of Legends and FFXIV.
And yes I would consider used parts if they were from a reputable vendor, but new would be preferred though smile.gif

There's a Marketplace right here on Overclock.net where you can buy used things from other members on here.
