well you are missing alot of stuff like opt drive, hard drive, psu, etc. You realize this right? 600$ could get you a bottom of the line comp that will work right now but be outdated ina flash imo.

Yeah, You are gonna need that money...
Out dated really quickly with under $1,000.
You will just end up spending more if you get a $600 machine now and end up having to upgrade EVERYTHING !

a 13 gig HD? It might not even be compatible..
even so you install windows and office and bam you don't have room for any games anyway.

A 13 gig hard drive....wtf..lol. Consider this after you have installed XP and other basic files with the updates you will have like 7-8 gigs left for games and everything else. Belive me that doesnt go very far since most new games are like 1.5-2 gigs.
