    My friend has bought a few computers from ibuypower.com and is happy with them.

    I have always thought that the cases are too fancy with all the lights but I was just checking out their site and you can choose a standard beige case.

    Have you looked at getting a Dell?

    You can easily get a low end machine for $300-$400 and sometimes even one with a monitor if needed.

    I know a lot of people here don't seem to like Dell, but I figured I'd throw it out there.

    You can take a look at gotapex.com for some coupon codes and deals.
