    My computer i have rightnow is a HP T6212 and its around 7 years old at its to the point were it cant do anything right with out random performance drops so were going to get either a new computer or build on. Ive told my mother that building would save atleast 100 dollar. Now my problem is i need a mother board that can take 4 GB of ram (DDR SDRAM) and we dont need more then 125gb memory, the computer we hae right now has 145gb, and only 30gb are used :/ so i think we an save money froom haveing les mem. I plan on playing Mabinoig, combat arms, Dragons nest,Vindictus,mincraft, and my sister plans on playing Sims 3, all of this on my computer, and being able to record videos like minecraft. on top of that the normal flash games. this is like 10-15 mb of space, not much so alota space isnt needed, but a fast enough mother board is needed.
    Also what is a good enough graphics card to play these games, they arent high end graphics and i dont need high end either. so yeah name em please and make em cheap :p

    You are talking about using Components that are very outdated. For around $600 you can build a fairly decent commputer. or you could go a barebones kit like this one http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=840165&CatId=332 all you would need to add to it is the a retail copy of windows 7 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5038534&CatId=4622 keeps you right at the top of your budget. but it is complete and you don't need to buy a video card to play the games you listed.
