    That's a real tight budget man, it's not impossible but tough.

    As Justin already stated, it would be quite hard unless you waited for some nice sales. Perhaps you should wait until you have more money saved up? Otherwise you may be disappointed with the outcome.

    I threw a build together just now. It's $634.59, so a little over your $500.

    Heres a build that is similar to my $500 gaming rig. And Yes 700 will get u a i5 which I highly suggest but if you cant afford it, the i3 can do the job for now

    U can always upgrade the processor later but overclocking will be out of the question for the CPU at least. But if you can live with that then this build could play all your games at ultra with decent fps.

    build one yourself.

    $700 is a bit more reasonable for the games you're wanting to play.

    A gaming PC around $600 - $1000 will last you a long time & it is the sweet spot. I have a build just for playing the games that I need to, which are mostly low-spec'd games that costs around $400 - $500. If you're looking to 'get' a computer however, look at your computer retailers. If you're looking to 'build', then look to see what type of online computer stores you have in Australia.
