Okay... Here's the situtation...

A power supply, aka psu, is an item that can be transfered easily, and lasts along time, so it's not a wasted purchase... IF you plan on building up a computer frrom parts.

There's alot of possibilities for you, and i'll stick it out with helping you no matter how dumb you think questions get.

Lets start at 1&3. You could get a 300, 350W psu for reletively cheap then get the video card aka gpu. I really wouldnt go that route.

#2.. I'd buy this: Newegg.com - iBUYPOWER Gamer Power 502D3 Desktop PC Athlon II X2 250(3.0GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Capacity Dedicated ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphics (512MB) Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
It's only $399 AND you can make it better over the year or more.

I's say newegg is a more secure site than amazon, as amazon sells things for companies, where as newegg is the company, and probably the largest online retailers for computers in the US. So i'd assume its even safer than amzon.

You can also call them and order in person i believe.

Oh to be 16 again... but i do sorta enjoy being over 21!

I'll look into amazon for you later.. i should be working right nows...

Here's your best in your price at amazon
Amazon.com: CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA120 Gaming Desktop PC (Black): Computers & Accessories

Ironically, the newegg one is now deactivated, but theyre roughly the same.

Being young and no cash, its difficult to get a great setup. But going vcyberpower/ibuypower allows alot more future flexibility.

You could even try getting something straight from their sites.
