Default what else do i need to add to this system?

I am interested in buying this pc : http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?inv...KIT-K2&cat=BBK
I am only wondering if i will need to add any thing else to it except what comes in the kit.And if i will be able to stick a nicer graphics card in it.

It has a AGP slot, but the PSU only has 15amps on the 12v, not enough to run a very good card.

You can fix that by getting a new PSU and putting it in, costs about $50 for a Fortron one.

That PC will not be going anywhere far in games.

if your gonna get that one forget about gaming , even if youll put a more powerfull psu & better graphic card , the processor is weak and plain bad for gaming+256mb ram isnt good enough , i dont like the hd it got only 2mb buffer and 1yr warranty

edit also naturally the onboard graphics takes some of the ram.. so if your not gonna put a card i suggest youll install 98se or 2k

edit2 just noticed your not from usa , so i dont think you can buy that one
