    It's a little early to talk about this, but I'll do it anyway:


    This Christmas, I want a gaming PC, capable of fully running quality games like Oblivion, FEAR, etc. However, I'm in a pickle:

    1. I'm too young to get a job where I am (I'm 15. 16 is "the age"), so I cannot provide money. I would like the PC to be at the most, $800.

    2. I can't build a PC off of Newegg, because my mom and aunt don't "like the idea of you putting it together", no matter how many times I tell them. They want name-brand crap like Dell, even though they're ridiculously overpriced, and underpowered.

    3. I desperately need a new monitor, but that would take a blow to the budget.


    What is the cheapest Gaming PC I can get, that can run Oblivion?

    The CPU seen on your configuration is worse than mine, and the video card is an Integrated Intel Graphics Processor? WTF?
