GPU: 29.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125073 - GIGABYTE GV-NX72G512P1 GeForce 7200GS 128MB 32-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail - cheapest fully dedicated graphics for PCI x16 interface. MOBO has onboard, so this isnt fully necessary.

Case: 27.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811164089 - Linkworld PRESCOTT 437-01-C2222 Black SECC/SGCC MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case 430W Power Supply - Retail

Total Price: about 290 dollars
Total Price after estimated shipping: 340
Total Price after estimated shipping and cost of cables (because everything was OEM), keyboard, mouse and speakers: 380

Yeah I think we should do, who can build the best computer for a certain amount, because you can get any cheap case, the lowest ram possible, lowest cd drive, lowest mobo, and not even graphics, and you can only get so low.
