Default Building a new computer

I want to build a new computer to sell for more then I will build it for. It has to be a gaming computer and atleast $200-$300.00 with no operating system.

I will NOT use the parts listed in my sig #2. Computer 2 in my sig is my next computer probably after I build the $200-$300 computer to sell.

what do you mean? I am hoping to get an amd athlon 64 X2 6400+, 2gb of ram unless you tell me I should get the 4gb, evga geforce 7600gt unless you tell me to get the 8800gts, asus m2n4 sli, sata 300gb hard drive, sata dvd drive combo.

I just got $100.00 in 10 minutes. I will not tell you how but its totally LEGAL!!! Thats right its LEGAL not illegal ITS LEGAL!!!

Anyway I don't think I will be able to get any more money that way cause of Too many expert people out their. So 4gb of ddr2 or an 8800GTS?

Oh and do I need vista? will xp pro be fine? I know I have to upgrade to vista eventually but I don't got the money right now. I will if I have to though. I know vista will make the computer faster but I don't know if the computer will run at all in xp.
