well, good luck with that budget.
I would go buy a used system, and a new monitor and hope for the best. There is no way to buy a case, power supply, motherboard, processor, ram, HDD, ODD, GPU and a monitor for $300 and have it play any games at all.

As stated above, good luck. Just buy a console for $300 because there's no way you'll find anything even close to decent to game with for $300.

Without an OS, this just might be doable, but assuming you want Windows you won't be able to build any system at all on $200.

Same applies to the monitor, actually. I hadn't noticed you want one of those too. I think you'll just have to do a lot of creative eBay work.

On it. Posting in a minute. Edits will be ongoing.
If you have an HDD, that'll help a lot.
Let's see if this is at all possible on Newegg, assuming you don't want a single-core HTPC. "Fast" is not going to happen, though.
-$60 X2 250, dual-core 3 ghz
-$80 Hitachi 500gb
-$55 ASRock 880GM-LE, micro-ATX
-$35 Rosewill case, dual fans: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
-$35 Corsair 430W PSU ($45 before rebate). You are not allowed to go any cheaper on this.
-$21 Kingston Value 1x4gb RAM, 1333mhz
-$19 Asus ODD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$305, without a GPU. That means basically no gaming. What do you mean by "gaming," though? Online gaming? You're not going to get Battlefield out of this thing without another $80 or so at the very least.

When I say "fast" I mean its able to run java games and not lag out on me, just to clarify.
