ok $500 AND Windows 7? You are going to have a tough time building something decent and get a Windows 7 Upgrade.

What kind of power supply do you have? You might have to go Dell and then upgrade it via Newegg.

If you Power Supply is decent enough we may be able to get somewhere...

are you a student? That is a huge question because it can change the direction I go in when helping you.
