~$776 for a Pentium D, a gig of RAM, 160GB HDD, onboard graphics. No deal, man, no deal.

I would almost sell you my rig for that (almost, mind you), and it would rip that setup a new one.

Really? how much do you think it is worth? I don't really want to have to buy coponents and make my own, so my options are quite limited. Short of being ripped of by pcworld or dell

The Dell Vostro's are pretty nice. I would actually recommend them and have.

Building your own is actually pretty simple. The hardest part id deciding on your parts, but that is what we are here for. Mainly all you need is to post a budget and where you are geographically (country) so people can post links to stuff you can actually order. Newegg wouldn't do you any good other than to look up parts.
