Default Looking to build cheapest computer

You might have come to this thread thinking, "Ugh, another noob who wants a kickass gaming computer but only has $200."

No. I want to build a CHEAP computer. Cheap being the keyword. Yes I would want internet on it, I would probably only use it for AIM, Email, and browsing around my forums.

If anyone could put together a list, or maybe even if you have some old cheap anythign laying around, talk to me about a price. Thanks!

Edit: How about a barebone system? I'm thinking AMD on this one, but let me know what you think:

Get that foxcon one, and the processor and ram I picked. comes with mouse and keyboard. better then part by part. lol. If i got the barebones ill re edit and tell you what processor and ram i would get to equal 200 without shipping.

Foxcon Barebones

Same Processor

This Ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211117

The Barebones have intagrated Sound and Video.

Puts you like right at $200.

$199.10

Under 200 beat that. Plus Keyboard and Mouse haha. You could get the ram up top but I picked DDR 400 PC3200 ram. Faster. Hope this helped you out.

You think I should go with Intel, seens how it won't be the nicest gaming computer haha. And are you talking about the ones I posted up there? I think their both Foxcon, but the Intel is 800mhz and the AMD is 333mhz.
