You can get a pretty decent computer for $600.

E6320: $175
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...5015&Tpk=e6320

Asus P5B: $115
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131030

2 GB G.Skill RAM: $75
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098

550W Antec PSU: $70
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371002

GeForce 8600GTS: $155
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130086


That's a little less than $600, add a case, DVD drives, etc and you'll be just a tad over budget. It's a really nice computer though.
