Default Could someone put together a build for me?

My budget is $300 and it has to include the following parts,

CPU
RAM
Motherboard
80GB HDD
DVD/CD Burner
PSU
Video Card

^The total of all those parts above has to be no more than $300.

I have already picked out a case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156018
And is this a good monitor? - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824002217

I don't care if it's AMD or Intel, whatever is the better value.

I just want to use this computer for email, internet, downloads, and playing some old games.

I don't need much. Just enough for web surfing, burning cds/dvds and playing some old games. Could you at least post a build so I can see what I can get for $300 and compare it to a Dell?

I might be able to stretch to $400 if it would make a difference....

Well. possibly 400 would do somthing, but with that monitor and case, thats almost 160 off your 300. thats only 140 for parts. and theres some pretty pricey parts you need...

Sorry im not much help, dont have a lot of experience in THAT cheap of parts.

Nope, only the internal components listed above.
