Budget Gaming/Business Computer

It's time to replace a computer I built back in 2003 for Half-Life 2.

I need a new computer, preferably a build, that will run today's games passibly. I will also run Works and Quickbooks Pro.


I would like to use my old hard drive which is a measly 30 gb 7200rpm so that I can still use XP, and use an external HD for storage. If new games won't run on XP, I don't want to waste money on an operating system if I can buy a ready built computer that includes it.


My two options:

1. Build from scratch but use old XP op system

2. Buy normal desktop but upgrade the graphics card


Side question: Is AMD or Intel better for gaming?

I like Tigerdirect or Newegg unless there is another trustworthy place out there.

Any suggestions are welcome. Thank You.

What about my 386 processor? Will the new computer still run Minesweeper?
