preaty much any cmputer now adays will play counter strike 1.6 just tell him to go into best biuy and pick up the best he can get for 500$ really because when ur budget is that low u end up getting lower end by building yourself.

I dont think any of us are familiar enough with fry's inventory or pricing to give you a decent suggestion on a build.

Anywhoo, Bestbuy overprices most of their systems anyways so you wont find a good comp for $500. You can prolly build a medium-low end build with $500. Persuade him to buy it online. :P
