Default NEED HELP $450-$550 build

Rough budget. I prefer newegg. 500gb harddrive is all i need (unless its like 5 bucks more for a larger one).

I DO NO NEED A MONITOR, KEYBOARD, OR MOUSE.

Do you need OS software or do you have that sorted?

From NewEgg, it's $5 more for an 800 GB WD Caviar Green 64MB Cache. I'd go for that.

Aren't the Caviar Greens the ones that run at 5400RPM instead of 7200RPM? Which isn't a good idea if it's your main drive instead of your storage drive.
