The following, based on vast experience with custom builds, would be a great economical gaming computer for around $400...

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $63
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $72 (scores 6.7 on WEI)
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $40 ($16 off as combo with mobo)
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $70 (scores 7.0 on WEI)
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $50 (scores 5.9 on WEI)
DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $17
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $45
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $35 ($10 off as combo with case)

Of course, opinions may differ, but this is what I'd recommend to any of my friends or customers.

Having utilized these components before, this system should be able to run most modern games at 1920x1080 at high settings.

Any questions, please feel free to ask.
