Well heres what i have, it can run most games (cept oblivion max quality)
Gigabyte GA-K8 Pro sli mobo
AMD Athlon 3500+ Oc'ed 2.5ghz (equivilent to 3700+)
Patriot 1 gig dual channel pc3200 x2 512
XFX 7600GT (soon to be dual)
500 watt power supply..not sure brand.
uhh dvd burner
120 gb SATA Hdd

If you get this..its only about 700 dollars, but with your budget, you can get double the power of this most likely.

case NZXT
Processor intel core 2 duo
Mobo Gigabyte DS3
GPU XFX
HDD Seagate
Ram Corsair
PSU Antec

comes to about $1338 range without tax + delivery.
if $1400 is total with tax and all. go with the 1gb ram of the same brand. $100 cheaper.

not really, 1.8GHZ E6300 is like 3.6GHZ intel P4 in clock speed.
so its not slow, and core 2 duo are dual cores instead of just 1 single core, so u can multi task even more better without trouble.
