Default Is there a Cheap hosting computer That I can biuild

Hey guys I know i am making a lot of threads on getting computers but i want to keep my options alive. I was thinking of building a desktop or could I get a hosting laptop? And I would create it for hosting....Such as Websites, and Private servers possibly. So what do you guys think what would be my prace range for a good hosting computer, but it can also still run games so I can check out the stuff IM making

gfx: second-hand 8800gts 640mb
psu: antec basiq 350W
Ram: 2x1gb ddr2 by a mainline brand
hdd: samsung F1 or seagate 7200.11

That should come to around 200 or $300 (cheaper US prices)

Yeah, good CPU, okay GPU is fine. Something like a GSO is all you need.
Id go with a Q6600 2.4ghz Quad and onboard video. The quad will give you the option to host games and such on later on and if your sites get lots of views. (Although internet is more of a factor there.)
