    Case - $100 - $200
    RAM - $80 - $150
    Power Supply - $90 - $150
    Operating System - $100 +(unless open source)
    Processor - $150 - $300
    DVD Drive - $30 - $50

  6. $750 is a slightly below-average gaming rig. You could do $500, but only if you were doing something like WoW and other lower power MMOs. It depends ENTIRELY on what you want to play, and how you want to play it.

    be prepared to alter the build as you need, better psu/graphics etc but as boiler said, something like that will more than do you for Wow etc,
