first of all, your not gonna be able to buy a good computer that has a good mobo and good cpu and a good graphics card with 500 bucks, frist you should buy a AMD 64 3400+ with a supporting mobo with pci express and then buy a geforce 6600 pci-express then that wud be. BAD ASS for hl2

yeah, you can't get all that for 600. Go with good ram and a good video card. and save up a bit more for the rest.
