How much are you paying for this? On July 24 AMD is having a huge price drop on all of their chips inlcuding the Athlon64 X2 dual cores IMO if you are on a budget you should put together a system with an Athlon64 X2 and OC it, or if you ave more money go for an Intel Core2 Duo e6600 when they come out on July 27th.

ya that PC is great. it can run pretty much any game out there on max settings.. BUT.. its not the best value out there. definitely look into getting a dual core cpu! and you should probably also looking into getting a core 2 duo instead of AMD...
