Ehh, its ok, but the Power supply is Junk.
Get a case with no PSU then Purchase a 450 Watt Fotron. Its worth it. The PSU Is the most Important part of any computer.

The Memory Link is only 512MB and Not 1 GB.

So redo that and make sure its a matched pair of 512 Sticks.

Looks alright, nothing for the future though...

I think it's a bit of waste of your money if you want to buy two-year-old computer parts. You might as well save up that money and some little more to buy a more up-to-date computer in the future. But that's just a bit of advice.

Decent system, good performance for that price at least. Memory is a bit slow but then again I don't know what speeds that mobo can handle.
