Default Re: Good prebuilt for cost?

short answer no

the 8400GS is weak, you don't know what kind of crap motherboard and ram you're getting, or power supply for that matter... and I'm personally not too fond of AMD cpus for the time being

The American folks here will give you a better idea of what beast you could built yourself within that price range (there are some other sites like Fry's that apparently have crazier prices)

edit: it indicates you're getting a ASUS M2A-VM Mainboard, which is a mATX board, which generally suck anyway, RAM seems to be generic, and no mention of a power supply, probably the POS that came with that case

terrible buy actually
