Joey is looking to build a budget PC system for around $500. Leo recommends going to PCPerspective and check out their Hardware Leaderboard. They have suggestions for every budget. Right now is a good time to be buying because hardware prices are dropping, especially video cards, where newer models were recently announced. And AMD is a great choice for a budget system because their performance is really giving Intel a run for the money. Leo also recommends the Samsung EVO SSD for the system hard drive.
