Default Need a bit of help.

Hey guys, I am looking to buy my own PC. but I have only 400$ maximum to spend on it, which is a bit of a problem. The main thing I want with my computer is to be able to play World of Warcraft, other then that I could care less. WoW does not require very much, but you need a bit more to play it without crazy lag. I play it fine on my family PC, which has 512 mb of RAM and 2.7Ghz procesor I believe. If I could get something close to that it would be great. Here are the requirements for WoW -

# 800 MHz or higher CPU
# 256 MB or more of RAM
# 32 MB 3D graphics card with hardware transform and lighting, such as GeForce 2 or better
# 4 GB or more of available hard drive space
# DirectX® 9.0c or above
# A 56k or higher modem with an Internet connection

So do you guys have any suggestions on a system, or a website/store where I could likely find a system that would work, if you could help me it would be greatly appreciated. I am new to buying computers so I have no idea where to look. Thanks!

Hey guys, I went to Emachines.com (brand of our current computer which has been great). I found both of these.

$339.00 http://www.emachines.com/products/pr...Machines_T3990

$399.00 http://www.emachines.com/products/pr...Machines_T4010

Both are in stock at the CompUsa near me, which is where I bought the PC we are using right now, and got a good deal. I am not even sure if I can afford the $399 one, but I also don't think 256mb will really work very good with WoW.

Ever thought of building a custom one? And for those eMachines pcs, the second one seems to be ok for ur needs. If u are going to buy on of those eMachines go for the second one.
