I tend to use punctuation to convey my point.

Why not save a bit more? 700-750 USD is pretty much the sweet-spot for gaming rigs these days. i5, P55, 4GB quality RAM, GTS450/GTX460, quality PSU, well made case, etc.

Going tight on funds is only going to hurt you in the end. Over time, things can only get cheaper.

You haven't really listed what kind of gaming you will be doing, either. Elaborate on that a bit, please. What games, what detail settings desired as what frame rate desired, all at what resolution?
