What's the best guitar to buy for 500? My playing ranges from Dream Theater to Thrash to Death, the band. Thanks.

There is no "best guitar" just go and try some in your price range in a guitar shop and the buy the one you like the most.

God I hate these threads.

Based on what you posted, this is my only advice:
Don't buy a FR.
