I want to build a REAL machine for Low graphic gaming (Black Ops on low @ 50 fps in all maps) under 300-400$, any specs you can give me? A barebone with a good motherboard if you can.

Don't want to start an argument or war or what ever, but have you considered an AMD build? some of their 4 cores are dirt cheap now, plus their motherboards are cheaper than intel (on average). Just a thought.

Heck, you think I would go with INTEL? No way. AMD is so much better. Any AMD barebones? Anyone?

well we don't have reason to believe otherwise, since you posted in intel section after all.

Tell us what your monitor resolution is.

$400 is impossible if you need Windows. Go with AMD.

Again this was a quick build should be around $450 without windows, and this includes a great overclocker and a good gpu, plus a great cpu fan, that I can't seem to find in stock anywhere but costs only $40.

I could try with amd, results will vary. Tried to keep it intel.
