Default How much?

If I were to build a gaming computer that could run most games at med-high settings, how much would it cost, roughly?

$350 for mobo, video card, PSU, RAM, and processor. I can give you the exact list of stuff I got from new egg. I can max out crysis with 2x AA and get ~37FPS

Wow, please give me the exact list I'd like to look at it. What OS did you use?

I already had an OS when I bought it. But I'll give you the list of stuff that I bought. I just bought the major components.

That's actually slightly different, because they no longer sold the powersupply, but that's a better one for less anyhow. After the mail in rebates, that should be really cheap, and all you have to add is the case, HDD's, and optical drives.
