    I just sold my old system for $350 with almost the same specs. GeForce 460, C2D E7500. It's not an OMGFANTASTIC deal, but not a bad one, if you want a good budget system on a sub 500 budget with OS

    Budget gaming build that can handle most
    newer games. Offers great value for money.

    Lowest settings I daresay it would handle quite well. Sandy Bridge architecture is pretty awesome, so if you're on that tight of a budget, a build like that would probably be the best.

    Do you need an operating system/any peripherals (Monitor, mouse, keyboard, headset?)

    I wouldn't. Performance would be about the same, but thats $388 WITHOUT the OS. So the total cost would be more like $470. And the 465 is better at WoW than the 7770. Smaller HD (not that that matters) and half the ram (Which also doesnt matter, but point still stands)

    I do need an OS and my budget is around $500 so we can upgrade some parts on that list i believe. I do NOT need any peripherals though , got them all. Thank you btw. <3

    Oh, that's different then. If your budget is 500 and you don't need an OS... A custom built system would def be better.

    I'd say that you ought to be able to run at least Good settings. Its sort of a tight budget to really push it. What are you using now?

    Sorry for the late response, hope you'll still get back to me . I'm not home but I do know I have a nvidia GeForce gt220 and a AMDll processor . I don't even think I have more then 2 gig RAM. I mean all in all a really really bad cpu. Anything would be an upgrade.always shuts down when I play wow for. 5 minutes. I only need a CPU build for wow .
