You can imagine that it's not the tops for gaming. I have trouble running 1-2 year old RTS' and FPS', so it's not really up to spiff in terms of gaming for me.
I had a friend a while back with some expendable income that built his own computer, and recently (couple months ago) wanted to upgrade it. He would be getting rid of his Motherboard and CPU.
He's basically backed out, leaving my plan to get just what I needed cheaply down the drain.
So these past two nights I set out to Newegg.com
I don't have a load of money, But I was looking for something that could....
-Run modern games at roughly Medium, I'd be happy. Crysis would be peachy keen, but hey, beggars can't be choosers.
-Run Safely and Reliably, Cheaply.
Anyways, I have $350 saved, on hand. Of course that's not enough.
My Shopping Cart on NewEgg Reads $505.00
I understand it's pricey, and it bugs me. But before I commit to this investment, I require some help/information.
I'm not really too computer Savvy, just enough to get by, and kind-of build a computer. So, I'm going to post the URL's here, and I hope you'll give me some help/info.
Thanks ahead of time.

Yeah, For 30 dollars more I could have gotten 600 gigs, but I'm trying to cut corners in every way possible.

Ok, it says there's an Onboard Video Card, can't find it, and If it's there, I really hope it's a 9600 or 8800 GT, or something comparable that can run more recent/modern games. Please O' Please, some help is needed.

no problem here, If I can find it, I'll get 4 gigs for less. I just want it to run smooth enough for gaming..again >.<

Alright, I've read this one is good enough to bring my system specs up to spiff. Hopefully. Let's hope. Thoughts?
That's all I've got for you. Any help, please. I'm in dire straits, and I need a guiding hand or words of advice/comfort on this subject. it's almost 3 AM, got work in the morning, and for the second night i've done this. Please and thanks.
