If you have access to US websites, check out a internet show / podcast called Tekzilla. They have a feature on how to build a great 500 dollar gaming PC. You might have to search around the website for it, but maybe if you Google it, it might come up right away. At least you can have an idea. I trust this show very much.

CPU
RAM
Motherboard
HDD
GPU
Case
PSU
OS

That is what you need. I'm currently busy but I'll come back and build a rig for you later.
What websites can you order from that ships to your country?

You're using British sites from Cyprus? There must be a shop in Turkey, or somewhere else close, that will ship to you for less.

I hadn't heard of the first site before but Overclockers UK is legitimate, as far as I know.
Also, is that budget 600 dollars US, pounds sterling, euros.. ?

What is the purpose of the build? What will you be using the PC for?
