Your gonna need to spend a bit more money...unless you just want to buy a barebone PC and save up for a G-card later.

Yea. $600 won't take what you want. The AMD 64 are outdating slowly. The AMD 64 X2 are replacing. I'd be glad to see an Athlon 64 X2 4000+ or higher in that machine...or wait til the socket M2 comes out...

I didn't buy ANY of those pieces of hardware I listed. Second it's a 64-bit computer @ 2.53 GHz, why wouldn't you want it, considering the price tag is only $94.00. Just trying to fit something within your budget...sorry for trying to help.
