    512MB of Ram
    Intel Celeron D 356
    ATI Radeon Xpress 200


    So this, basicly is his PC right now, a complete piece of sh*t.

    What I'm asking is, if you guys could find me a cheap, good computer, that can outbest his current one.
    He'd buy seperate parts, but neither me ( I can't give instructions (Don't know) and he lives in America ) or him have the knowledge to know what parts to buy 'n' whatever.

    If you guys could find me a deal, that could pretty much today's games (Like Bioshock or Assassin's Creed), that'd be wonderfull.

    Thank you in advance ^^ .

    He's got five thousand dollars to waste. But his minimun is around one thousand dollars, he doesn't mind spending one thousand and five hundred though, or a bit more lol.

    You can probably get a really nice computer for that then. If I remember correctly, if you go to dell.com and get a vostro something and get the one that gives you the best deal for about 1k and then select to upgrade the graphics card, you can get a really decked out computer for 1200 bucks.
