Default Will This Work Out???

Is it possible to buy a computer that can handle games like BF2 on full graphics without compromising on speed for £400? ($700)

I will be mainly using it for games like BF2, playing music, browsing and downloading on shared broadband, playing DVD's and TV, and other stuff.

Can anyone list me some componets that will cost around £400 ($700) That can handle the stuff I wanna do without compromise?

Thanks alot, btw I would like a DVD/CD-RW combi, and a tv tuner, dont worry about the case, i got one in mind, and! the screen should be adleast 17" !!!! Thanks again!!!

I think it's possible, just don't expect to be able to play it at max settings or very high resolutions.
