Basic System for Friends

I have had a lot of friends over to my place over the last couple of years now that we really got back into playing World of Warcraft again.. :P But anyways, one of my friends suggested the idea of maybe having an extra rig to have around so a buddy could play without dragging their PC out of there place and over to mine. I found this to be a very good idea myself and I am willing to put the money towards it as long as I know it will be a good little rig simlpy for WOW and web browsing, along with maybe media (Windows Media Player/iTunes) on the side note. I was also trying to keep the base price under 350$. Thats the big challenge. I don't really mind if shipping goes over 350$, but if any of you have a suggestion along those lines, that would be fantastic! After about 3 or so hours on the Egg, I was able to construct this little beast. (By the way, my friends are not picky about graphics settings and anything that will keep over 30 FPS is golden for them. Ugradablility is also not a factor either because once this rig is through that all it can do, I'm just going to donate it to someone or someplace.)
