The best thing for you is to build a budget model PC, which you can do on your own. Its not hard. I have assembled PCs for 400 - 500 before that run great.

Be sure that you ask the one tending to your needs for a copy of your operating system and all recovery utilities because the majority of the time they forget. Also ask for the most detailed product specifications sheet just in case something breaks down.
Good luck and have fun.

What about a Gateway? Anything that is boxed in live cow skin has to be good.

Gateway and emachines are rated as the worse OEMs in existence by the IDC group.
