I really want a new PC. I have two that are absolutely terrible(my parents bought them w/out much searching). I really dont have much of an income so my max is 400 or under.

Im pretty novice with computers(I know a thing or two) and I have shopped for Pcs quite alot but can never come to a final decision. My price max has lowered also as I dont make much being unable to have a job.

Games? garrys mod, half life, (POSSIBLY Crisis but not a need), and other newer, popular games.

Music/Video media? Music. Not ALOT but maybe 500 songs? A couple videos.

other uses? Internet, must be decently fast, IM, and mapping for hl2.

also, win7

I know 400$ probabely wont fit that criteria, but thanks for any advice you people can give.

BTW, is this any good? PC

A good start...would be telling us what you have now...and if you intend to use anything from the old system in the new system.

It would also help to know location, since many of us are in the U.S. and will cite U.S. prices and availability.

If I wanted a new PC right now...cheaply...I'd start with either a barebones package or...take a look at the vendors at http://www.pricewatch.com/computer_systems_with_os/. The lower-priced systems will be those which are "let's eliminate inventory" units which offer good value to users not interested in the "latest/greatest" and who are not inclined to build (IMO).
