Is there any possible way to make a computer that will run most current/new PC games at decent settings for about/less than $450? My friend is trying to convince his dad to get a family computer, but they don't have too much money to spare. I told him that if he convinced his dad, I'd try to find something (with some help from you guys). I don't know how he does, but if even if his dad says no, if he sees what kinds of "outrageously low" prices you guys come up with, he might change his mind.
Must-Haves: 512MB, 2.xx (or higher) processor, OS, S-Video/Composite capabilities.
Nice-To-Haves: Decent VGA, Optical Drive with at least DVD-ROM capabilities, Modular PSU.
Price Includes: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Case.
NOTE1: What is the best/lowest-priced high-speed internet deal out there? Could you recommend one, because they don't have internet either.
NOTE2: Please, no AGP mobos, or old socket-types...
EDIT: Sorry, I forgot something:
I managed to get it down to $440, but wanted to see what you guys came up with. Here's mine:
I didn't recommend a PSU, but I added in $50 for that.
