Default Cheap Build

Hey Everyone :]

My laptop is not cutting it no more and it's time for a desktop.

I play CS 1.6 and CS:S

So what I ask of you is try to build a pretty good comp that can get 60+fps in CS:S. Price limit is about 300-400 if it can be below 400 that be nice but I know that a little to much to ask for.

I need everything except monitor,mouse,keyboard,and CD drive.

ps a barebone build be nice to
Thanks

If you really to try to save some money, downgrade the video card to a 7600GT, and save $30:

Still a good card, but if you can afford the X1950PRO you'll really like it a lot more.
