Here you go:

CPU: Phenom II X2 550
Mobo: Foxconn 790GX DDR3
RAM: 2x2GB DDR3 1600 (Not much more expensive than 1333
GPU: HD 4870
PSU: OCZ 500W modular
HDD: This depends on your needs and I can't pick one for you.
Disk drive: Samsung 22x
Case: CM RC-690

Total: $569.

I didn't know if you needed an OS or not, so I left some room. If you do, go with Vista Home Premium 64bit, it comes with a free upgrade to Windows 7.

worship's rig looks good, but if you can scrounge up a bit more money, the 720 is a good tri-core.

Or you could get the x2 and unlock the extra core
