New temporary build

Hey guys, I have a bit of an issue. So my current computer is about to crap out on me, so I need to build something asap. I don't have the money for the system I had planned, so I was curious about what kinda options someone could come up with. The plan is to get a decent system running for now, and upgrading it later (probably in a month or two), so maybe even onboard graphics for now or something. Video card I plan on using later is an XFX Radeon HD 6870, but that does not need to be included in price atm or anything. Thanks for looking!

Approximate Purchase Date: Within 2 weeks

Budget Range: 3-400

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (WoW, maybe BF3)

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, Amazon, Ncix

Location: USA, no good local stores

Parts Preferences: Whatever the best option is

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024

  1. With the OS, you only have $200-$300 parts. Not a big upgrade path. I'll see what parts list I can come up with.
  2. Well the only part I planned on upgrading was the video card. Just won't be able to afford one atm.
