Custom build desktop $700 with xp

I was just wondering, since I am interested in buying and building a new computer, what are best components to build the best computer for my use, which is gaming. I understand I would need a good processor, video card and at least 4g of ram to have good gaming capabilities. Now, I would need something in my price range which is 650-700 dollars. I've been reading around the forums and it seems it will be easy and fun to build a gaming desktop so I just thought I'd asked what some of you recommend in my price range.

  1. This topic has been moved from the section Opinions and Experiences to section Systems by Buwish
  2. That sort of budget, I'd look for an X4 Phenom at 3 Ghz, 890 chipset mainboard, and 5870 gpu (on sale for $239 after rebate at NewEgg), 550-650 watt PSU.....4 GB of memory is enough

    WinXp is really about dead as OS of choice for gaming, as Direct X stops at 9.x for XP....
