I don't see anything you can bring over from your old system. You could reuse the power supply but honestly it's a piece of junk so why would you?

You can reuse your drive assuming it's SATA. I'd still suggest a new, faster hard drive and/or an SSD, however.\

 

What country are you in?

 

What shop (post website name where you will get the parts)?

 

Does the 500 euros include Windows 8? Does it include a monitor?

 

Do you need a new keyboard and mouse?

Ok. I found an online store for Potugal. Even if you don't buy from them, it will let you know what the prices are like an what you can afford.

Comes out to  550 Euros. If you want I can slice a few things here and there and get it down to 500. The reason it's 550 instead of 500 is that these components are a significant leap over what would be possible with 50 Euros less. 

 

For example, with 50 Euros less, we could cut the graphics card down to a GTX 650, and then you would have very bad framerates in your games. Especially in new, demanding games.

 

If we cut 50 euros from the CPU and motherboard, you end up with a low end AMD quad core CPU and a motherboard that would never be capable of overclocking. The weaker CPU would cost you noticeably in framerates the same way the weaker GPU would.

 

Given the prices in Portugal, which I was not aware of until I checked this website, this setup, for 550, is the minimum "good" system that I would build. If you take 50 Euros away you lose so much.

 

This setup is highly upgradable. Add a big CPU cooler and overclock your CPU to 4.5Ghz. Or upgrade your GPU to a GTX 780. The CPU will keep up with it. Or add a 240GB fast SSD.

 

If you ever do upgrade the system, the first thing I suggest you do is add an SSD. Even 120GB. Install Windows, your favorite games and most important programs on it. They load almost instantly. Makes your computer feel so much faster.

 

Hope I helped.

So are you gonna build it? :bubbles:

 

By the way I forgot to mention, if your old hard drive still works reliably, and it's big enough for modern applications (say 500GB+), why don't you keep that, use it in the new machine, and use the money saved for a 120GB SSD? Crucial M500 is the best affordable SSD. Still very fast reads at a very low price. Reliable brand.
