WHY?? Save your money, build up a few bucks for a much better PC.

WHY settle for 20 fps? That will suck

This doesn't even have a case.

Find something to put it in. If it's easily flammable, make some holes in it for "airflow".

You'd use the hard drive that you already have.

Yeah, forgot about that. Unfortunately, any decent PSU will take much more of the budget. OP, here's a build that isn't as powerful (but probably won't blow up)

Still no case or new hard drive, but you get what you pay for.

EDIT: If you have a little more money, you could get this DDR3-2133 RAM. It's $10 more, and gives a big speed boost. DDR3-2133 is the fastest speed this board supports. You might have to fiddle around with the BIOS to enable the higher speeds, however.

Thanks to SuperGojira2001 for pointing out that faster RAM would be better
