Default Upgrade now or wait?

Im thinking about building a new comp, id like some feedback n sugestions on the choices iv made.

Shuttle xpc SN95G5
Amd Athlon64 3500+ (s939)
2x PC4000 Kingmax 512mb DDR 500 Dimm
X800XT 256mb
200gig WD sata hdd

Would this be able to last me 3 years because i probly wont be able to upgrade till then or should i wait for a better shuttle wit pci express?

I think you should be getting a 6800 GT or one of the 6800 models instead of the x800, it was a bad series and the 6800 beats it with each respective model. Personally, I'd say wait, the prices will go down a lot in the next 4-5 months where you'll probably be able to save more, or at least get better hardware for the same money.


*edit* ohh and welcome to TF!!

I would wait until after the holidays if you do. I would not recomend a shuttle case for upgradibility. Get a regular mid-sized or fullsized.
