Gaming Computer Build Under 400$ Help

I am getting money to build a computer for Christmas and have been saving up for a while. My budget is going to be around $350-$400. I just want it to be a mid-range gaming system and I already have a hard drive and cd drive. Thanks to anyone who can help.

  1. what size (and possibly speed and interface type) is the hard drive? do you need a monitor? operating system? speakers? keyboard & mouse?

    Off the top of my head, I'd suggest an Athlon II X2 250, or X3 450, 4 GB of RAM, a GTS 450, and an inexpensive, but relible PSU and case

    It should run $400ish for that setup.
  2. Sorry this is my first post and do not know how to post very well obviously.
    The hard drive I have is a 500 gb 7200.
    I have a monitor.
    Have my operating system already.
    I have speakers.
    I am set with the keyboard and mouse.

    ok, since you already have those parts:

    Prices are newegg, and off the cuff.

    AS Rock 770 motherboard ($60)
    Athlon II X3 450($79)
    4 GB DDR3-1333 ($45)
    Coolermaster Elite 310 with Elite 460W Power Supply ($70)
    Palit GTX 460 1 GB: ($155)
    use your existing parts for HDD, DVD burner, etc: $0

    $409 total
  4. Thanks for your response. I have already been looking at a build similar to this and will probably go with you suggestions.
    Again, thanks alot.
  5. If that $400 is an ABSOLUTE Limit. you could get a HD 5770 for $130
