Default Need help with build

I need suggestions for an inexpensive but reliable build for a computer that will be used mainly for web browsing. I would like to stay below $500.00 as much as possible and I don't care if it is AMD or Intel. I would appreciate any links from newegg. Its the only online electronic store I will buy from. I dont need anything but the case and the components that go inside. Thanks very much.


CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
Mobo - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
GPU - EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB
RAM - G.SKILL 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
H.D. - Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA III (SSD)
PSU - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V
Case - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout
Monitor - Dual Hanns-G HW191D 19" Flat Panel
OS - Windows 7 Home 64 bit

Total: $500.

If you will do no gaming at all, remove the 4770, change the motherboard to: - GIGABYTE GA-MA780G-UD3H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
and get this: - AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Black Processor - Processors - Desktops
