Gaming/Multitasking Desktop on a budget.

I plan on upgrading my computer here soon. i have yet to figure out my budget. i have $140 (would have $240, but i had to buy a wireless card, and a wireless networking adapter for my computer and xbox 360. damn microsoft with your way overpriced products) so far, and i'll have an estimated $605 by Christmas. that is best case scenario. I'm completely oblivious to the whereabouts of the inside of my computer. I've had it ever since i can remember, because my Dad put it together for me. all i know is that it has 1GB of RAM, and an Nvidea 9600 512MB in an AGP slot. yes, I have an AGP mobo. anyways. I need a computer that can run World of Warcraft at a high FPS with medium-high settings, one that has more than 2 front and 2 back USB ports, one that can have 3 internet windows, each with 5 tabs up, and have WoW running at the same time with no hiccups. And if you could, please make it Newegg. i tried putting together a cart there, but i cant seem to even out Price to Power.

Much appreciated,
Kirk R

    I'm assuming you have a case, hard drive, keyboard/mouse and monitor you can still use. If not, let me know.
