    Does not have a graphics card. I used a worse version of that onboard graphics chipset for almost 3 years. It'll play games at lowered detail and smaller resolutions though. This will allow you to make your budget, and get good parts and hopefully nab a graphics card in a few months. I don't see you making your budget with the graphics cards you are hoping for.

    Also, further down the road you can buy another HDD that matches this one, raid 0 them and get substantially good performance while allowing you to defer the cost AND get up and running now. If you can find one, I've seen a radeon 5770 on ebay for 60 dollars. Good card for that price. My wife is running one, and she plays WoW, LoL, and GW2 at 1920 x 1080 with 4gb of ram and an amd phenom 565 dual core(was hoping it would unlock to a quad).

    Ok, slight change. I'm going to assume that if you have a HDD, you probably have a Dvd drive as well. Almost hit your budget.

  9. I hate to recommend that cpu. I'm running a 940be oc'ed to 3.4ghz....so except for some slight changes I'm running that cpu. I'd be curious to see the two builds go head to head though.
