Default These parts good?

*Amd Athlon64 x2 3800+ (2.0 GHz, Dual-Core) 512k L2 Cache, Socket 939

*MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4

*Asus 52x CDROM Drive with QuietTrack

*Maxtor DiamondMax 10 200GB - 7200RPM, 16MB Cache

*Case w/400w ps

*XFX GeForce FX 5500

*Dual Channel Corsair Value select (2x512)

I have Moniter/Speakers/Keyboard/Mouse, i kinda ran out of money so i had to go lower on the video card, but i don't mind not running games on max settings.

Overall, not bad.

Why just a CDROM? I'd at least get a CD burner. They are really cheap anymore. Even a decent DVD burner can be had for less than $40.

Maxtor? In case you haven't heard, Maxtor is not know for reliability. Seagate has a five year warranty, Western Digital has a three.

400W ain't bad for this system, but is it a decent CPU? Most CPUs that come with a case are cheaper made than the case they came with. Be cautious.

The rest looks great as long as your not a hardcore gamer.
