I'm looking to build a budget gaming computer. Diablo 3 is my current concern but I'd like something that will last at least a couple years. I'm trying to stick to ~$500. Any suggestions or issues that you see with it I'd be very greatful to hear about.

I figure if I need to upgrade it in the future I'd get a new mobo, graphics card, cpu but try to hang on to the rest. I have a copy of windows 7 that will transition from my old computer to this one.
