Not sure if this is the right secion please move it if it isnt!

Basically i want to make a gaming rig but i want to buy an older desktop and upgrade as im going im not looking for an ultra graphics beast i just want something basic that will play MMORPG's well enough, so basically can anyone recomend a good cheap system to start with? Will probably buy something off ebay for cheap then just upgrade what is needed, any thougts welcome

something with a core 2 duo cpu, 2g memory, you should be able to get a hd4850 included now, a lesser card would do but its nice to have the detail high in games.
