A friend of mine has asked that I build him a computer for ~500$. Specifically he will be playing WoW and Diablo 3, and wants them to run at decent settings. However, he needs a keyboard, mouse, and speakers as well as the desktop. I am not so sure that he can get all of this for 500 bucks. I am pretty sure WoW will run without a hitch but Diablo 3 raises suspicion, the beta caused my 1,500$ PC to hitch a bit. It has been a while since I built my PC so I am out of the loop. Can you guys tell me if this is possible, and perhaps give me a build? I will undoubtedly be using newegg for parts if that helps.

$500 is gonna be tough budget to work with considering that you have to include the peripheral and it's gonna be for gaming purposes. Your friend is gonna have to up the budget.

That's what I had thought, what would be a reasonable amount for a gaming PC then? ~800?
