Default Can you?

Can you find a computer that has this:

2gig+ Motherboard

512+mb DDR Ram

256+Mb Video card

Case, Hard drive

All for $300.

(This guy has horrible rules from his family, no upgrading. You have to find it made already and ready to be connected. He currently plays little gay games because he can't play anything better . If you could find something better, That would be awesome.)

Thank you for your help, and believe me, i understand how hard this is. That is, if this is as expensive as i used to see them as.

-- Trout.

Well, your best bet is to goi to a website like dell, or if you have the money alienware customize it on the site, and have it shipped to you rhouse pre-made, idk if that falls under the category no customizing but it doesn't sound like it.

For dell the XPS series is your best bet for building a gaming machine

$499 might be more realistic and acctually pretty easy to find.

i just got some random comp at sams for $300 with a nice pent 4, nice amount of ram, fair HD space, but no grahpics card, but at sams club they ALSO had a nVidia 7600 for $102 so 402 total....but that requires upgrading, just upgrade when they leave the house...LOL

Lol ya, im trying to push for him either doing it behind their back or arguing with his parents xD. I'm pretty sure in the next month or so, his parents will give in hopefully X_X.

If I were just looking for hard drive/ram/motherboard (Which is all he needs to upgrade, he still has loads of gigs left on hard drive and everything is fine with fans due to it being like 40degrees in his house most the time). What do you think he should choose?

I found these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103747

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102428

http://shop1.outpost.com/product/374...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Are they good deals and is there anything new that he should just wait to buy for?

Btw, thanks for your time and help again ^_^.
