a grand (1000) should cut it for a decent gaming computer, without monitor. If you get one of them cheap core2duo chips with a motherboard that supports new penryn cpu's also, You can overclock the h3ll out of it and then upgrade later to a nice penryn quad.

The build suggested above is perfect for this.

is it.. d.a.m.n (why is this word filtered comeon). Well they should of fixed it by the time he wants a penryn. that core2duo is perfect choice till then.. cheap and overclockable. 8-12 months down the line he can simply pop a cheaper penryn in and have great improvement.

2180 ftw
