Looking for a really inexpensive--but really good--desktop computer? These five sub-$750 desktop models (each came with a monitor, a mouse, and a keyboard) include some real finds, but you'll still have to make compromises with them. As always, we tested performance in productivity applications using our WorldBench 6 benchmark and evaluated the gaming capabilities--such as they were--of each system using Doom 3 and Far Cry test scripts at a variety of resolutions.
