Default Budget Gaming Computer!?

Hey, I'm trying to find parts for a cost-effective, yet low-budget gaming computer. I was wondering if the following parts would make a good gaming computer, or if I could possibly get better parts for the same or lower cost:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...pa=1&section=1

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-379&depa=1

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...pa=1&section=3

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...146-219&depa=1

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-468&depa=1

http://www.circuitcity.com/detail.js...&catoid=-10263 (this has rebates and comes to just $60)

http://www.circuitcity.com/rebatedet...oid=-8027&qp=0 (this has rebates and comes to just $80)

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-603&depa=1

Like I said, if there are better (whether higher quality or higher performance) parts for about the same price (I would be willing to pay a little more for a step up in quality, but I am limited on $), I would be interested in looking at them. All help appreciated, thanks.

Thanks for the link, chog. Are those parts good parts to get though? I can't find prices that cheap, either.

Check out the refurbished section of Newegg. You can find some REALLY good deals there. They might still have the 9700 Pro for like $120

Also, the Abit AN7 is a great motherboard, the 2500+ is a good processor, but if you're not going to be OCing you can go with PC2700 as your ram.
