If I were you, I'd stick with a gig of RAM (instead of 2), and use the extra money to buy a faster proc. (You can always add more RAM if you need it... which I doubt you will... but it's much more expensive to add extra Ghz to your proc.
) Otherwise it seems like a decent way to spoend $800. ... of course, for an extra 400 or so, you could build a much more impressive rig... but I hear you're not so good at saving money, so that might not be an option.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
-- John Stuart Mill
