Not digging AGP or Socket 754. Could be worse though. Could be better. As long as you're satisfied with it why does it matter what anyone else thinks?

Quite a bit better than the average retail PC. Kinda low-end for a gaming PC though. It just depends on what you do.

yeah i think its good for a budget pc. but if you wanted to bump it up into a better gaming pc then switch the videocard to like a 6800 or 7800. Overall i like it. Who am i to judge anyways? lol

Socket and CPU- Outdated for Most games
PSU- Sucks
RAM- WHAT brand? Timings?
Video card- Horrible

Maybe a low end gaming machine at best.

Yeah the socket is cruddy, rather had 939. and shoulda went for pci-e, not in budget. RAM is 1 GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM forgot the brand module covered with a thermal-dissipation cover pretty sure corsair. If i had that pci-e, im sure that vid car would have been better, it would have to be.

Well, he may not be a hardcore gamer. Not everybody needs dual-core CPUs and 7800GTXs.
