Default Challenge

I have a dilemma:

I've been thinking of building a PC recently. However, I recently learned that I have to get parts from Fry's Electronics or Best Buy near Canoga Park, California. If someone could give me a good list of parts for a $650 PC, and tell me if it's in stock near there, I'll go get them.

I need: AMD Zambezi
1GB GFX card.
6GB RAM or more
Full PC
Wireless Card
Windows 7

All at $650 or less.

I tried looking through the others and ripping parts to compare, but they're all out of stock permanantly or something D:

usually you can look at similar item suggestions on a site or contact the maker and ask which part replaced the original
