Default help with low bdget comp please!

hey everyone, this is my first post.

Im asking for a new desktop computer for christmas from my parents, I basically just want it to run world of warcraft..

these are the system requirements:


 OS: Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4) or Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
 Processor: Intel Pentium3 800MHz or AMD Athlon 800MHz
 Memory:
 Minimum: 512 MB RAM
 Recommended: 1GB RAM
 Video:
 Minimum: 32MB 3D graphics processor with Hardware Transform and Lighting, such as an NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or above
 Recommended: 64MB VRAM 3D graphics processor with Vertex and Pixel Shader capability, such as an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 class card or above
 Sound: DirectX-compatible sound card


im not knowledgeable at all about specs like that, my price range is under 500, but Id rather it be closer to 400, it doesnt have to run on the highest settings like a dream, just get the job done.

any suggestions would be much apprciated
-mark

I suppose you're looking for a pre-built? Where are you in the world, exactly?

You could easily find a computer like that in the dump. Go pick thru the steel pile...you're sure to find a computer, maybe even a decent screen.

I dont think we need to be an ass. We're here to help, not tell someone they'r looking at getting a POS.

Try looking at newegg. They usualy have good deals on prebuilts.
