OK, it's going to be tight. Gaming (depending on what games) demand a lot of your computer. I figure at the very least 512 of good RAM (around $70-100), 9600X video card (around $175), Your motherboard choice is good (around $75-100). Now you have to figure in the cost of CPU if it wasn't include with the price you quoted and such things as HD, DVD, CD, etc. If the $600-700 is just for the RAM, Video Card and motherboard, and PSU then you can look at 1 Gig of good ram, maybe a little higher end video card, and the motherboard is still a good choice. Make sure you get a very reliable PSU.

500-600 is for the cpu, ram, psu, video card, and motherboard.
was gonna go with the following setting until i saw the email in my first post.

---ATI RADEON 9800PRO Video Card, 128MB DDR, 256-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP $223
---AMD Athlon XP 2800+ "Barton", 333MHz FSB, 512K Cache Processor $121
---ASUS "A7N8X-E Deluxe" nForce2 Ultra 400 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket A CPU $89
---Fortron 350W ATX12V Power Supply with 120mm Fan, P4 and AMD ready, Model "FSP350-60PN" $40

and the memory was
---Kingston HyperX Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-2700 $110

what are some other options for memory that i could go for?

he is probably getting 2700 ram so he can have it sync with his fsb

Go to the Asus website and look at the Qualified Vendor List for your motherboard. I have the A7N8X-X and got 512 MB of Corsair XMS.
