ati 9800pro 189$
any case with a PSU 50-70$
total is about 540 you can change a few things here and there
Where would you get the 9800PRO for 189? Or is it not built by ATI?
Anyway, look at my PC. Better than your sister would need, and I built it for less than 550 (monitor and mouse and other crap not included) If you need help, Private Message me dude, I could give you some really bang for the buck parts.
