Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
512 MB RAM
GeForce FX 5600
DirectX 9.0c
2.0 GB free HD space

do u think combat arms will play on medium quality with the 2.6 hgz single core?Yes because the architecture is much better than a P4 (which means it has a higher speed/Ghz).

honestly those 2 suggestions from newegg CPU wise are fine, however the GPU they have will pose a problem.. i tried it out on my old 3.20GHZ Pent D with an 8500GT and 3GB of ram.. and even with my system tweaked it was a little sluggish if possible GPU wise dont settle for anything below a high end 8 series card or a mid range 9 series card.. you'll be better off.. integrated graphics like the ones those 2 builds have wont cut it..

Buy this Compaq (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883109032) and add a 4650 for $50: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150393

do u think it would be safe using that card? i cant find how many watts the power supply is

The 4650 is a fairly low end card. It would probably add only about 30-50 watts to the total system load. It doesn't even need a PCIe power connector.

The PC has a 300 watt supply.

It's good that you're concerned about important things like this though.

This is like the 3rd thread (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=974401) (and here (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=970601)) of yours on this kind of build ($350 to $400). Why do you keep opening new threads?
