Gaming Computer For 500-700 Dollars

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ASAP

BUDGET RANGE: 500-700 After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming - And then the rest of normal use for computers.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers. Might need an OS unless I can use my XP disc on two computers (dell XP disc). Might also take a good deal on a monitor suggestion (please leave out of total)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: No preferred website though newegg.com seems to be the best.

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: None

OVERCLOCKING: Would prefer not to have to overclock.

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No clue what this is.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Don't know.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Want this computer to run SC2 (on low to medium graphic settings) and be useful in burning movies, encoding, and work for future games.

The standard build that batuchka posted in here looks good, but was wondering what I could cut/increase to fit my budget.

Basically want the CPU RAM Mobo and Graphics card to be sick.
HDD can be basic just 250GB is fine.
CD/DVD can be basic too.

  1. Hmm at that budget point and if burning/encoding is on the cards i'd just upgrade that Rana 440 to say Propus 635?
