What kind of games?
Is it $450 or $500? And where are you buying it from?
Do you need an optical drive?
She was pretty much only interested in Age of Empires III, Diablo 2 etc, nothing too intensive. We got a good deal at a store here in Christchurch, he had a basic package and we upgraded what we thought it needed.

came in to $900NZ, so $450US

edit: forgot to mention DVD drive, its an LG IDE DVD writer
