  1. Get a P4 2.6 with an asus P4P-800. Then buy some good memory and overclock!!!!
  2. Get an AMD Barton 2500+ and an Abit NF7-S (or the version you prefer - but needs to support FSB of 200). Those two can be gotten for your budget. But you need good ram @ pc3200. Raise the FSB of the CPU through the mobo and, wala, you've got 3200+ cpu that's a super gamer for cheap.

    PS. Send my $5 to Toys for Tots

    XP 2000+
    MSI KT3 ULTRA-2 KT333
    Maxtor 60GB ATA 133 7200RPM
    512MB PC2700
    ABIT G4 Ti4200 OTES 64MB
  3. For your budget, AMD is the way to go.

    I recommend ABIT NF7-S v2.0

    If you overclock, then buy AXP 2500+. If you don't, then buy AXP 2700+.

    And don't forget to buy good quality DDR400 RAM
