My eMachines I've been using is turning 2 this Christmas, and it's kinda terrible and I need a new one.

What I don't need:
  • Case
  • Power Supply
  • Hard Drive
I'm looking for a gaming computer so I can play at least Counter-Strike on highest settings. And other games like Half Life, Battlefield, CoD4, etc, that are coming out. So I'm good need a good graphics card, preferably nVidia.

The motherboard, CPU, RAM, and graphics card should be around $450 for solid parts, right?
