Yeah, 300-500 can get you a decent system excluding a monitor. You could run newer games with medium-low settings.

Okay..here's a quick idea of a $400 BIY PC:

AMD Sempron 2600+ - $66.00


Gigabyte GA - K8VM800M Mobo
- $54.00

--$120.00--

Corsair Value Select RAM - $72.50

PNY GeForce 5700LE Vid Card - $57.00

--$249.50--

Maxtor 160GB HDD (16MB buffer mem.) - $49.99 (after $40 rebate)

LiteOn DVD/CD -R/RW - $44.99

Aspire ATX 520W PSU

Total = $404.47

What do you guys think of this hard-drive?

80GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Serial-ATA Hard Drive

This 7200rpm drive features 80 Gbytes of capacity, a tough non-operating shock specification of 350 Gs, the world's best acoustics (2.5 bels idle), large 8MB Cache Memory, plus the performance of Serial ATA/150
