Question ...what could i improve upon?

TURBO X-ALIEN CASE 420W
AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Processor (512K L2 CACHE)
ASUS A7N8X nVidia nForce-2 ULTRA 400 FSB 8X AGP w/ USB 2.0
512 MB PC3200 400MHz DDR MEMORY
Seagate 80GB 7200RPM Serial ATA 150 8MB Cache
ATI RADEON 9600 XT 128MB DDR AGP 8X W/ TV-OUT & DVI
SONY 16X DVD-ROM
SONY CDRW 52X32X52 EIDE
ON-BOARD 5.1 SOUND CARD
THERMAL TEMPERATURE LCD DISPLAY WITH 3X FAN CONTROLLER
AMD CERTIFIED CPU FAN & HEATSINK + 3 EXTRA CASE FANS
600WATT PMPO SUBWOOFER STEREO SPEAKERS
WinXP Home

All for: $854.00

I think this will be good for basic gaming, and as birthdays/holidays come around i could get various upgrades as i go along.

I think its a pretty good deal, i am not smart enough to build one myself, this is pretty good for pre-built.

Please post you opinions on it, thanks.

I just find it handy for things like my digital camera. Make backups for your dvd movies. Right now you can get 4 gig dvd roms
