you'll never get NEAR a dream gaming comp with this amount of money
by dream do you mean "works REALLY well" or "is ungodly expensive"??
for $850 you can get a damned nice system. especially if you have parts leftover from another computer to salvage. i'm taking out my monitor, gpu and 2x120gb sata hdds from the computer i'm using right now for my new a64 3400+ dtr system.. the rest is going to cost $600. and it'll be running at 2.6ghz+
