Default Is this PC any good?

I recently found a computer with these specs for 550 The only the thing that really needs improving is the graphics card. Is this good for the price?

Hard Drive : 1tb 16mb Cache Serial ATA
Memory : 8gb DDR2 800 PC6400
Motherboard : Asrock K10N78-FullHD
Graphics Card : Nvidia Geforce 9500GT 1gb with HDMI Output
Optical Drive : 20x Lightscribe DVD Writer

What are your thoughts?

Agreed again. The thing it seems you're paying for with that is the inordinate amount of RAM. Which very few people need.
