You could make something that could do decent Medium graphics in most games. I built a system a few years back for around 500 that I just upgraded from.

Thats the invoice info from 2 years ago. Its a solid machine. Only game I had issues with really was Planetside 2 and that seems more of an AMD issue then anything. But I was able to play most games at a solid medium with a few highs and get 'acceptable' framerate.

I know the processor I had is cheaper now.

I don't know how much you know about PCs, but If you can salvage more from your old PC the better. I mean case is around 50 dollars for a cheap one. If you dont mind using your old case thats 50 dollars saved, PSU I'm leary about saving your old one but if its decent wattage you may be in luck thats around 50 dollars saved. If you HDD is decent size and Sata 3 you may be able to shave off a few dollars there.

Is Mail in rebates something you want to deal with, if so there is some decent Video card deals out right now in the 150 range.

Let me do a few scourings and toss something up here in a bit or tomorrow.
