Buying a PC with less than $200?

Is it possible? Some thing just barely decent? I need it to run chip emulation software... Specifically, the Xilinx FPGA Spartan-3 Starter Kit Board [ link | http://www.xilinx.com/bvdocs/userguides/ug130.pdf ] with this software [ link | http://www.xilinx.com/ise/logic_design_prod/webpack.htm ]

I need WinXP, apparently. I guess I could try to run it on Virtual PC, but I have a feeling that would be insanely, and painfully slow. Although I suppose I should try that first, before buying a PC eh? Yeah.
