Default Is this computer ok?

hey,
im getting a new computer soon and have used the pc builder at eyo.com.au to make this. I will be using it to play games and home use. Its fairly cheap.

CPU: AMD Athlon64 3200+, E3 venice core, Socket939

Mobo: Gigabyte Socket 939 M/B GA-K8N Ultra-SLi, SLi/PCI-e/SATA

RAM: Geil Dual Channel PC3200 400mhz DDR, 1gb (2x512)

HDD: Seagate Barracuda HDD SATA 80gb 2mb

Video Card: GeCube ATI Radeon X700, 256M BGA DDR, PCI-e

Floppy Drive

Network: D-Link Network Card DGE-530T 10/100/1000, 32 bit

DVDrom - Samsung TS-H352A 16x/48x, Beige

Windows XP home edition

Task ATX Case Crystal TK-6110-02 Case, 400W, Metallic Black

Total: $1,415.70 AUD

Just wondering if all the parts are decent, and if this machine will be able to run the latest games ok.
thanks

For that price, around 1050 US$, they should provide a bigger Hard Drive and A DVD burner... The other specs are fine, you might not be able to play demanding games at their full potential but it will run Half Life 2 without a problem. Though not at the best graphic quality/performance.

If you can, throw in a 6600GT video card instead of that x700. It will deliver MUCH better gaming performance and should be about the same price.

does it make much difference that the 6600GT's memory is 128mb whereas the x700 is 256?
