900$ is about the lowest amount u wanna go for an ok to good gaming system, believe me if you make money like you do save up, it is well worth the wait.

and when I say 900 I mean not including moniter, speakers, printer, mouse or keyboard. just the main parts.

originally in jan this year I had an ATI radoen 9600 Xt and a differen't psu.
I bought everything including mouse, keyboard, and moniter for 1500, no printer though.

see my point. good parts cost more but are worth it.

well that system macdawg put together will work just fine. Its not kickass, but will play new games well. It has a solid video card and CPU and 1GB of ram, which is what u need for gaming. So save up $605 and your good to go. we can revise it slightly when u are ready to buy. dont get discouraged little buddy!

THANKS.
I would seriously reconsider who you consider to be a "pal" of yours.. ..

At least you have a copy of XP to justify the piece of crap. Otherwise, the $150 you paid would've been $50 too much..
