Default Need some help with my first build.

Ok after much thought of what I'm wanting to do, if wanting to actually build one or stick with my stock acer. Firstly my budget is $400-$500 max. Well I'm not wanting to be complete hardcore pc gaming, like dual GPU's, 16gb ram, and 6 cores. I repair computers, but never really get in-depth with different CPU's, GPU's, and motherboards. Now I know what you all will say you'll never have a good gaming pc being on a budget. But oh well, I'm wanting to play Starcraft 2 and maybe some other titles, but for the most part its not going to be super gaming. I'm wanting to run Win7 64-bit O/S. Here is what kind of spec's I'm looking for:

-Hard drive (I already have one)

-DVD drve (I already have one)

-Mouse/Keyboard (I already have them)

-Win 7 64-bit (I already have it)

-CPU (don't know much about the difference between AMD and Intel. I've seen AMD Quads cheaper then Intel Quads and even sometimes Intel's Core2's.)

-Motherboard (wanting it capable of 8gb RAM but probably will stay at 4gb. Needs PCI express, and at least 4 SATA ports.)

-RAM (4gb would be good, but I could settle for less if it will still run well)

-GPU (needs to have HDMI, and can play Starcraft 2)

-Power Supply (600w)

-Case (nothing special, doesn't need to look pretty just needs to be well vented and everything can fit without modifing the case.

I'm going to be buying all from online today, so any help within the next 4-5 hours will help. Thanks.
