its pretty good and cheap. I'd say go for it. HOWEVER, the motherboard isnt very reputable. If possible, try to switch it for an Asus

Tetsusaiga, a barebones system is just that: barebones. It usually comes with the case, a MOBO, and sometimes a HD or processor. You'll have to buy a video card, sound card, modem, etc. whatever the barebones system doesn't come with. They have these systems on www.newegg.com and www.pricewatch.com for very reasonable prices.
