Moms Comp

hey guys, my mom came to me today asking me to rebuild her computer!! but heres the choker she only wants to spend $300.00 but wants it to be good enough to play games like CoD, NFSU2, etc. i came up with somethin on newegg but it came out to be $347ish without the case and shipping. could i possibly get a few suggestions on what i could do to make it cheaper.

AMD 2400m
Biostar M7NCD PRO
PNY nVIDIA GeForce FX5700LE Video Card, 128MB DDR ?256-bit? Verto GeForce FX 5700 LE OPTIMA
pqi TURBO Series Dual Channel 512MB(256MB x 2) DDR PC-3200
Thermaltake SILENT BOOST

she already has the HDD and CD-ROM drives from her old comp.

THX

Definitively. The Sempron is lame Trhoughbred core only, superlocked and such - but do the job and the deal is important, when you got over the very low limit, so...
Go for it, or spend 47$ more - I would go for the AXP-M for sure (more bang), but for mentioned games and paired with mentioned low-end gfx card it really did not matter.
