Is this £500 to include a VGA card and monitor.

if so i would say you are underestimating a tad (a big tad actually) what you THINK you can get for your money...

Assume that you will be running Vista 64 bit with 6Gb RAM.

The most important component of a gaming system is the graphics card, so I would recommend that you get at least a Radeon 4850 which can be had for £115 these days click here.

The CPU is important too, so try not to cut corners there if possible. The AMD Phemon II X4 810 is a good buy at the moment at £145, but I think that may be stretching your budget a little too much!

Remember though that hard drives and RAM and much easier (and economical) to upgrade than the CPU and graphics card.

If you fancy a go at overclocking, the intel e5200 is a cracking little cpu. Its quite an easy overclock too, at about £60 its a bargain.
