Ill spend $1400 give or take $150. I want it too play the games I listed and games like that. Im not sure of all the games my cousins play. Also surfing the web for cheats and patches for video games and thats about it. If theres enough there I would also want a tv tuner too record tv shows. I already have a hardrive too.

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ - $215

ABIT "AV8" K8T800 Pro Chipset Motherboard - $111

ATI AIW RADEON 9800PRO Video Card - $239

Corsair Value Select Dual Channel Kit 184 Pin 1G(512MBx2) DDR PC-3200 - $143

Lite-On 16X DVD Dual Drive -$66

That's around $850 I think, and that is a really nice build that will last you for quite some time, and be able to proccess most things you throw at it. That gives you $500+ to spend on anything else you want to throw into that computer.

If your not playing online then you will not get any lag at all. the 9800 gaara posted will play all those games you posted glitch free most likely. If you are playing online but have a pretty slow connection (dial-up) then be prepared for some lag.
