$900 is the top budget I have for a PC for a non-overclocker. This will have to include monitor and Vista Home Ultimate.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Get on newegg.com and i believe you can do this fairly easily. I would get an AMD system to cut cost, you could probably get a 5000+ and 2gigs of ram, as well as a 8600gt. Always try to get the best parts possible, dont cut costs with power supplies, etc. or you will regret it. There are tons of deals on newegg.com that will meet your budget. Happy hunting!

Here is a quality build for $650 without the MIR and OS, in fact you can upgrade the CPU to an e6750 and the video card to an 8800GTS for <$950.

Most of the parts are from ClubIT or NewEgg or MWave. Sorry no deal on MS OS.

If you want to upgrade anything, upgrade the video card to a Radeon X1950PRO 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 for an additional $20, sorry no MIR.

If you are determined to spend $900 upgrade the video card to GeForce 8800GTS for an additional $180.
