This computer has a PCIexpress card, which is the future of video cards so this will allow you to get an awesome video card and it even has 1gb of RAM which will save you from getting more RAM anytime soon.

Thats a nice deal ;-D

Alright, I was in the same situation as you a few months ago.

Here is a really cheap system that will be pretty sweet

1 GB Dual Channel ROM (Go with Dual Channel)- $70
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ - $160
Geforce - $120
( ... 6814130220)
Heatsink- $40
Intel Motherboard - $120

Thats a solid $350 right there.

I assume you have an old computer. Take the CD Drive (unless you want to burn CD's/DVD's and your old one isnt a burner), case, and cords from your old computer. Also, you could take the old power supply and hard drive if you want to save a little more. However, it's good to upgrade a hard drive every few years.

Samsung 250 GB hard drive - $120
A 500W power supply will run you about $40.

Thats a pretty sweet $510 dollar computer.

250 Gig hard drive, an Athlon 64 with an average Geforce card and dual channel 1 GB memory will give you a gaming machine able to play anything you throw at it.
