Yeah the build you got right now should be good (referring to the full build you posted). And I was talking about moving smoothly through the old games but newer games may need to be set to medium graphics. Upgrading wise, you may need a PSU pushing more power and well the rest seems good to me.

Edit: You can always wait a bit and get someone else's opinion before moving on.

No problem, that's what we're here for . Just leave the thread open for a few days and see who responds. I'll put it in my sig to get extra exposure for you .

just followed joel's signature here...
dunno if you already bought everything but,
HD 4670 is better than 9600GSO
have you thought of going with AMD?
quad-core for under $100 bucks doesn't sound bad too me

not yet im gonna start ordering soon and only the parts im absolutely sure about.

and an i3 is dual core but it has 2 processing threads per core so it does the same work a quad core can do with less heat.

and i think for a while im just gonna use the integrated graphics with the better board
