Default rate my rig

Hey guys, im pretty much always on the pc, my poor old latitude d610 is comeing to the end of its life and iv got the following desktop in consideration.

Intel core 2 duo 2ghz 2mb cache, 800mhz fsb
Vista home basic
2048mb 667mhz ddr2 ram
320gb sata HD
16x DVD +/-RW drive
512mb NVIDIA GeForce 8300GS turbocache graphics card

Some wireless mouse and keyboard i dug out of my drawer



I basically use the pc for everything, all the time. Note im not a gamer (miniclip:laughing: ?), ill have about 300 songs, alot of my website files. around 8000 pictures of differnt sizes, and your usual everyday files. There wont be many resourse hogging programs, just your usual.

Thanks!

um.. VRAM doesn't affect much, but its i think the 8300gs comes in just 512mb RAM and uses the gddr2 which is why it has so much RAM
