Default please help me pick a pc to fit my needs

I really need help. I completely understand that being computer illiterate in this day and age is deplorable but i rarely use my pc. I currently have a xp dinasaur that is incapable of anything modern. I have finally accepted that a new computer is necessary. I hope someone out there can help me pick out a pc that will fit my limited future needs. currently i play 1 game on my pc(starcraft)and honestly not often. i have recently found out about starcraft 2 coming soon and would like to get it. however i have read that my pc will probably not support it. I have windows xp but i think the memory is around 700mb. i could be wrong about that but probably not by much. all i really want or need is to be able to play starcraft 2 when its released and to be able to get instant movies from netflix, wich i cant right now. i do not want to spend much money and frankly a top of line pc would be completely wasted on me. CHEAP AND EASY PLEASE! any productive thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: please help me pick a pc to fit my needs

ur probably looking at something like this...
ZT Element 2051Ma Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2GB DDR2 320GB NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Windows Vista Home Premium

and then you will have to get a monitor and such...

but once you want to do some gaming, i would suggest a card such as this

9800 GT
Laptop - Toshiba Satellite P105 | Intel Mobile C2D T7200 @ 2.0 | 2gb DDR2 667 | 120gb HD | NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS | Vista Home Premium
Desktop 1 - ASUS M3A76-CM | AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 @ 2.7 | 4gb DDR2 800 | WD 320gb 7200rpm | ATI Radeon 3000 Integrated | W7 64 Bit
Desktop 2 - ASUS M4A78 Plus | AMD Phenom II X2 550 @ 3.1 | 4gb DDR2 1066 | WD 500gb 7200rpm | EVGA GTS 250 | W7 64 Bit
