    Get a build-your-own special from Fry's.
    They usually run a big ad in the Friday newspapers.

    I built a system for a friend for about $320 that included a case & PSU, motherboard, Sempron CPU, RAM, 30GB HDD & DVD/CDRW drive from parts at Fry's.
    You might need additional parts like keyboard, mouse, monitor, OS, etc.

    I only suggest that because you live in LA and there are Fry's in your area.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
