completely depends on the person and their income. 500 might be fine for you but it wouldn't suit everyone.

 

Personally $500 would be too low, for me.


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

You can definitely get a decent gaming rig for $500, but it depends on pricing and what parts you get. At $500, I would turn to the used market for a fair few parts.

That depends on your expectations.

What games do you play, at which resolution and refresh rate and how high do you want to crank the settings?

Nevertheless, for $ 500 you can definitely have a decent setup.

Do you also need peripherals like monitor, headset, keyboard etc?

 

Does OS have to be included?

A legit OS (retail version and no OEM) would be already one fifth of your $ 500 budget. So if the operating system should be included in the price, then I would definitely look on the used market for parts. However, if it’s not, and you don’t have high expectations, then you already can get something nice for $ 500.
