No way you're going to get a machine with a 24" monitor that can max out anything you throw at it. Building it yourself may be cheaper, but it's not a miracle worker. I'll try to price something together for you, but the reason your builds are around 1000 bucks would probably be because you want more than you want to pay for.

And what kind of games are these? It depends on the game whether or not you can max it out with the money you wanna spend...

I highly doubt a $500 machine is going to be able to play Crysis at max... A GPU to max it out is going to cost a majority of that, not to mention the CPU/enough RAM/etc.

I'd love to know the specs of these "maxing" machines. Because 500 bucks won't get you that much performance. You can't get something for nothing.

Well don't assume that, loads of games look great at medium settings.

Give me a few and I'll see what I can put together.

This build is $637 before mail in rebates. I did not include on os because you can use the free Windows 7 RC like Yamikotai mentined earlier.

Newegg.com - LG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 22X DVD-R 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD502lJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Newegg.com - XFX HD-487A-ZHFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - OCZ Blade Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model OCZ2B800C44GK - Desktop Memory

Newegg.com - Antec 300+ Antec EA650w combo deal

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II x2 545 + Biostar 790gx combo deal

It might not be able to max everything out at 1900x1200 but it should come pretty close to it.
