To those that think they can't get a cheap PC game machine so figure its cheaper to just buy a console. I built one from low end parts and managed to play the latest COD, Bioshock, and Crysis at Med settings at 800x600. It's an Athlon X2 4000+ with 2 gig of Ram and a Geforce 8400 GS Graphics card. I was looking to just build a cheap computer for my sister and used what was left over of the budget for a cheap graphics card. I then got a cheaper motherboard without onboard graphics. The motherboard has very few features, only one IDE port and two SATA Ports, for instance. It does have PCI Express X16 port and onboard sound. I was surprised at how well it all worked. I even played a few hours of Oblivion on it.
