you could probably fit a 7900gs in there, significant improvement
also the patriot extremes with 4 latency are only $65 after MIR

Kobe's build is great... a couple of substitutions...

how about a 7900gs instead of a 7600gt.. go with an e2180 and overclock it like mad (goes past high 3 ghz) and that should cost around 600-650ish with my suggestions.. also get a AF7 because gaming can make your CPU say "Its getting hot in here" overclocking makes it say that too

well thats because Intel is great for the price... but this is a lower-end system because he didn't specify a budget... and i can tell you that maybe pushing it because that GPU you have there is 1/3 of what my recommendation's price would be...

honestly i like AMD for their budget builds... but Kobe recommended Intel, and i tweaked his build to be more bang for the buck

but if you want AMD:

x2 4400+ brisbane
biostar tforce550 or 7025
and then choose everything else we had on Kobe's list... for the other parts... i think its around the same price as the Intel, but a bit cheaper...
