You're not going to build a major gaming computer from scratch for $200. Around $500 will get you a good AMD A10 APU setup which is good for MMOs such as WoW. $800 will get you a machine for 1920x1080 (not including monitor). So give us a reasonable budget.

Oh well that's different. Well look at my system in my sig. Not counting my SSDs, monitor, speakers, and Windows 7 I spent about $1200. I spent $700 on the SSDs ($300 on the Vertex 4 on a Christmas sale, $240 on the Vector, and $120 on the Agility 3), about $350 on the monitor, $500 on the speakers, and Windows 7 was about $20 because I was in college at the time. If that's not your thing then might I suggest a 128GB SSD as a boot drive and a Seagate hybrid HDD/SDD for everything else.

SDDs are many times faster, their response times are a fraction of the time for an HDD, and their random operations capability is many fold faster than an HDD, which means programs which use many files, such as Windows, Office, and games, are able to load quicker. Most people have a 128GB SSD for their boot drive, then a traditional HDD for their media and games.
