Cheap Gaming PC

My girlfriend wants a gaming pc, but she wants something as cheap as possible.

1. What is your budget and does that include shipping/taxes?
cheap as possible

2. Where do you live (Please list if possible town, state, and country)?

3. What do you need this computer to do (like gaming, Photoshop, and so on)?
Gaming. Her current laptop cant run Portal 2 without lagging.

4. What parts will you need for the computer? Please list what parts specifically.
Everything except monitor, keyboard, mouse.

5. Are you reusing any parts for this computer? If so please say what parts.
I may be able to loan her my old psu. 550 Watt Antec from 2006.

6. What kind of monitor/resolution do you have or want to get to use for the computer? At first she'll be using my old monitor. 1280x1024. She may upgrade.

7. Do you have a legit OS? If so what OS and is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
I've got this covered.

8. What are you looking for the motherboard to have feature wise? Like SLI, Crossfire, Firewire, USB 3.0, Sata 6.0 Gb/s, and so on.
Nothing specific.

9. Any plans to overclock the CPU or GPU?

10. What time kind of time frame are you planning on ordering these parts?
No time frame. Not a lot of money right now. She was just curious.


Basically, she cant play Portal 2 or even The Sims 3 without lag on her laptop. She is also into TF2, Sanctum, and wants to try PS2. She wants to play some current games, even on low settings without lag.
