Default New System help?

Ok, so I've decided to update to a new System. I've been running on an old Dell XPS 410 for quite a while now (few upgrades). And after the latest BC2 came out and I wasn't able to run it, I got upset. So I'm on a slight budget. Anyone know of a nice Barebones kit system for around $400 dollars that would run up to date games and possibly be updated for the future? Or could someone build a system for around $350-$450, and post the link for me.

Any input at all would be greatly appreciated.
