    for $600-900 you really should build it yourself, you can make a nice desktop for that much money.

    if you feel like doing some simple instruction reading, you can easily put together a computer in about an hour

    example of a good cheap pc via newegg http://nov.us.to/2010-10-02_0317.png

    this is assuming you have your XP cd, and you can reuse optical drive (cheap anyways), monitor, mouse/keyboard

    $600 -> $900, you have a wide variety to choose from .
    you could check out NewEgg's DIY kits where they bundle parts and have a discount .

    like this one :
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleD...st=Combo.475889
    For $685, you get an i5-760, 2x2GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and a 700W PSU . case looks okay, but consider reading reviews . and finally, you can probably add a decent/average GPU for under $150 and an Optical Drive.
