yes that's a really good gaming machine. 1gb of ram will be enough to run the latest game. maybe u can upgrade the sound card to a creative labs x-fi but i don't think u would care for the sound quality/performance. but overall, that biatch will last for a long time

That'll make mincemeat out of any game currently on the market, and probably for a few years to come.

What kind of price can you get that for out of interest? In the UK things seem to be a little pricier, I would have thought that would set you back around £1000 ($2000), but I'd be interested to know if it's cheaper and if so by how much.

you might want to get the X2 3800+ and a better mobo like an MSI K8N NEO4-F as that sucks

agreed. i reccomend a gig of geil mem instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144310
and an dfi ultra-d mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152
plus i'd get a x2 3800+ or 4200+ instead for processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103562
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103547
plus i'd get an aftermarket cpu fan like the big typhoon
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061
with some arctic silver 5
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007
and that psu is likely to be crap and the case is strange looking, i'd get a thermaltake shark and an OCZ modstream 520
