Build a killer DX10 PC that is inexpensive

Few pains are quite as distinctive as that of installing a game hot off the press, only to find that gamers are too busy being annoyed by the lurching framerate to actually enjoy it. But the answer isn't necessarily palming over a thousand notes for an off-the-peg PC.

Custom building a PC is cheaper, and people get to choose the best parts for the job. And the latter is something that they can't guarantee from even an established system-builder, as their concerns are as often as much about shifting mass-purchased units as choosing the most effective ones.

PC market. An $800 rig that packs such good performance is a steal.

I bought a pc from the dell outlet for $230 and spent another $200 on it. Here's what i got

AMD x2 (2.0ghz)
3gb of ram
160gb HD
Vista Basic
and a 8600gt Gddr3 256mb

Not the best setup in the world, but for $430 it was one hell of a deal.

I can play Guildwars and Source, both on high, at the same time if i choose.

Inexpensive is not the word to use there. It's definitely a good value when you consider price-to-performance vs the computer over there at best buy, but thats still a lot of money.
