Default Need A Cheap Setup!

I am going to build a computer this summer, I want it to be a gaming one. I need sometime to give me a few setups that are cheap, but will let me game. I need it under $700 if possible. It will be easier for you because I have the following parts already:

Video Card (AGP)
Hard Drive

I ask that in the setup, they include the DFI nF3 754 MoBo w/ AGP, to best suit my card.

Just remember those 3 items, and help me choose the cheapest but best gaming computer I can get, thanks!

venice 3200+
dfi nf3 mobo
1 gig of OCZ plat. EL Rev2's or twinMOS
OCZ modstream 450W
NEC 3510A

probably that

btw, your 9600pro (i think) will limit your performance, even with a FX-55 it won't perform good

Should do fine, my buddy has one with a AMD 64 2800+ and he scores good on 3DNow 03.
