Good luck!

No. High performance. Thats the whole challenge. Anyone can build a noob pc with a celeron. I'm talking about a nice overclocker. Sempron is a good start.

I'm sorry, but you won't find any "high performance" systems for that price. You can build a decent system, but nothing amazing.

Check this out: 500 dollar gaming rig

Like I said, it's nothing amazing, but it's pretty decent. It doesn't include monitor / case / ect

A Sempron or Sempron 64? I overclocked my friend's Sempron 64 3000+ (1.8GHz) to 2.8GHz. Actually; 2.8GHz Sempron 64 = 2.7GHz Athlon 64 = 2.6GHz FX-55.

Magnificient overclockers, those Sempron 64s.
