My budget for the new computer is: 400-500 $

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Games, web browsing.

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Windows 7, don't really know other than the OS, just basic stuff.

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
MMO's, FPS.

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
Usually close it all up, would be nice to be able to multitask a little bit though.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Just a few. Nothing massive
