ASPIRE X-Infinity ATXB6KLW-BK/420 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 420W power supply for AMD/Intel Power Supply

NEC Black IDE/ATAPI DVD Burner Model ND-3550A

Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3250823AS 250GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3200BPBOX

CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model TWINX1024-3200C2PT

I know it isnt the top of the line graphics card or processor but it is alot better than this pc which had a 1600+ and a 9600pro video card.

No matter what the reviews say, the 6600GT is going to wipe the floor with the 6600 vanilla. You will need to upgrade your graphics card within the next year anyways. Other than that, that is not a bad system at all.
