one thing: consider going for 1GB o' ram. Other than that, thumbs up, I'd say. =)
I'm kinda busy, so I can't look at how much it's worth right now. Maybe someone else will.

Yes it is a good system and should work well with doom3 and some future games..

I agree with regulus.. i think you should upgrade it to 1 gig of ram.

There's no way you buy that kind of stuff and not know if it's a good enough system to game muchless doom3....come on now this is just a 'show off my system thread' basically....

Upgrade you video card to a 6800GT. You will be much happier with your performance. The vanilla 6800 didn't do as well in the last Half-Life 2 benchmarks I saw, but it still did well enough.
