Can anyone reccomend me a decent Gaming Computer for under 400?

This would be everything from the case, to cpu, motherboard, ram etc. I already have mouses, keyboards, monitors and cd drives.

I am looking for something to smoothly run decent 3d graphics and games like call of duty and fallout.

Do you prefer a custom built or pre-made?

You can have a system built for under 600. If you go custom built hang with gigabyte, intel and a case that you like, if you need any help with putting something together i'll help, plus with software, happy new year, ps: dual channel ddr3 is good enough, also get a western digital drive, 32 meg buffers are out 60 bucks newegg lt dan

here are complete kits that you can get that should have everything except the OS. Newegg

Another site would be tiger direct which they have done a better job getting kits together then newegg but newegg sometimes has a better deal.

If you are wanting to go the premade route then any of the XPS line from dell would be great. Compaq and HP makes a gaming line as well. It just depends on if you have enough knowledge to put it together or not. Remember that we are here to help put it together if need be. And there are great guides on the internet (like this one). you learn how to put one together which may help you fix a problem later on.

good luck

I reckon the Gigabyte motherboard is a lot more better then the BioStar motherboard.
