    go to newegg.com for WAY discounted parts and cheap, cheap shipping.

    Get a intel duo core processor for about $400

    2GB ram for about $120

    250GB hard drive for about $100

    802.11 b/g wireless router (if you have other computers or if you plan on moving your computer somewhere else) $40

    I wouldnt recomment a wireless keyboard for games, because it makes the games all screwed up.

    flat screen monitor (17") you can get for under $150

    A GOOD motherboard is about $200

    Decent cool looking case is about $30

    DVD/CD burner is about $30-$50

    And windows XP is about $80-$100

    Definitely do not get a mac.

    Newegg is a good idea, but also compare the prices to mwave.com. as for what parts to get, it kind of depends on what you want to do. If you are on a tight budget, there is no reason to spend more than twice as much to get an intel, get an AMD processor, 4800+ is only $130. A 250 gig will run you about $70, Windows XP Pro is $130, and you definitely want pro.
