    That's do-able
    775 2.8GHz 800MHz FSB 1MB L2 cache & ASROCK mobo combo $200
    2 160GB HDD $120
    X300 $100
    17" LCD $200
    512Mb memory Pc3200 $70
    DVD and CD ROMs $80 for both
    Case and Power supply $60

    You'll have to find the hard drives on sale. The LCD will probably be crappy for gaming. Too slow a refresh rate. You would be better off with a CRT for less $. Buy a bigger power supply or better graphics card or 512MBs more of memory.
