You can build a pretty good computer for that much especailly since you already have moniter, keyboard and mouse. Im sure PZero is circling for the kill right about now.

Did you read anything I said?
IT'S JUST LIKE BUYING A PREBUILT.. BUT BETTER.
They assemble the above stuff online and ship it to you, so all you have to do is plug it in.
