My advice to your problem would be just to but a prebuilt hp computer.(m7160n+) Its powerful, within your price range and got everything you would want on a gaming pc. It even comes loaded with MS windows media center 2006 and a remote control. Not to long ago i baught one of those and i cannot find one downside to it its just like a dream pc.
any hope this helps.
