Default $500 Budget Computer

I need a computer that can run WoW and call of duty mw2 on a 22
inch monitor. On WoW, it needs to be able to run on max graphics. Please help me make a setup. ( don't need monitor keyboard or mouse )

I don't need a cd drive because I can use an external one.

Also I don't need a ton of hard dive space. I think 100gb will be good

Here's one option for you:

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE gz-ph1a3 Black SGCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
Newegg.com - ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

total: 495.93 + shipping w/ $45 mail in rebate.

You could downgrade your video card to a 4850 and get a quad core cpu instead. There are a lot of little modifications you could make to suit your personal needs.. good luck.

I'd second the 4850 option, you'd save some money and it's easily good enough to play MW2 and WoW.
