Talking What computer should I buy?

Hi everyone . I'm a n00b and need help buying a computer that's $300 or less (no monitor).

NOTE: Barebone might not be for me cause I'm not that computer-savvy I think.


Anyway, this is what I'd like in a computer:

  1. Windows Vista Home Premium / Windows XP Professional
  2. 2GB of RAM
  3. AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (or as high as possible)
  4. 200GB HDD (or as high as possible)
  5. GeForce 6150 (or as high as possible)


Please note, that I plan upgrading the graphics card and power supply by the end of the year if needed.

I want to play an MMORPG called Stargate Worlds, which many say have the same speculations as Unreal Tournament 3 (check Can You Run It? or YouGamers to see the recommended requirements I speak of).


I want a 'starter gaming PC', but only want to upgrade the power supply and graphics card... so keep that in mind.

I have looked a long time to find a computer like this, but have failed. Please reply with a link to a computer that is perfect for me. Than-you in advance!

You're not going to have a lot, if any choices. A barebone will do you good right now. You might have to buy a refurbished computer. Save up for a month or some more, and you can build a decent gaming computer for $500.

Those aren't going to last him very long. Nice choices, by the way.
