How can i build a computer with $250? My cousin gave me a WD 640gb HDD, an Ati Radion Ati 5770 gpu, and a Corsair 750W PS. So what esle do I need to put in, so I can get a system that can handle games. I wouldn't care if the Cpu is Amd or Intel. And, should i buy an old dvd drive?

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($74.24 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($46.98 @ Outlet PC)
Memory: Patriot Signature 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($49.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case ($29.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($17.98 @ Outlet PC)
Total: $219.18
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM... its a half decent budget build that will be able to do moderate gaming just fine. My bro has a very similar setup and runs Battlefield 3 on high settings. The only question is, do you need an OS? Because you are looking at a another $90 for Windows 7.
