Default Good Buy?

I was thinking of getting my son a rig for christmis and came accross this, XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit - Intel Pentium D 925 3.0GHz OEM, 2 x 512MB Video Cards, 2GB DDR2 PC6400, ATX Mid-Tower Case, Clear Side, 500 Watt Power Supply in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

Do you think this is a good buy? I don't know the CPU and GPU but it might work. Please let me know if for the price its a good deal.

well the price is resonable but all the parts are junk to tell you the truth. if you give us a budget will give you the best build you can get for the price.

give us a budget

we'll help you build one for FREE. maybe you can owe us a beer sometime.

If you build yourself.. your gonna have a more powerful computer for the price.. and it aint that hard to do.
