I could put together a $300 computer that could handle light-medium gaming if you are ok with building it.

It could eat any $200 POS you find at a store for breakfast.

I will put together a list of every part to buy. You would have to put the computer together. Its really easy. If you can put in a video card, you can do it.

Well that's really all there is to building it. You screw the mobo and drives in then everything else is snap in and simple wiring.

I will be back in a few minutes with a parts list.
