Default Cheap Gaming Rig build

Hey guys i need to build a cheap gaming rig for my friend. The budget is about 630$ with shipping. My friend wants the comp. for gaming and music and movies etc.. He wants it to have 1tb of memory.

It will be used to play games like WoW , aion, guildwars, call of duty etc...

He already has a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and an 64bit OS.

So if you guys can spec up a computer to those specifications that would really help me out!

thanks again guys, have a great day.

With the money left over from Trotter's build, you could upgrade your video card to a 4890, or you could even upgrade your cpu to a Phenom X4 Deneb.

Oops. Missed that part.

Either drop in another 500GB, or add this one:
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

That'll take up that extra dough.
