Wow, well I hope you aren't planning on playing any new games any time soon. DX10 cards won't be out for some time and that video card isn't very good. Also you need 2gb of RAM.

Also a very good site is Monarchcomputers.com they build your comp for like $40 or something.

Well as I said I am going to upgrade the memory to 4 gigs I may go with a better Graphics card but not the best one because I would rather spend a little money and get by rather than just spend a crap load and then buy new ones when they come out lol, other than that how is my system though any reccomendations?


Thanks
Brian

Ouch! Major CPU with a POS card! That ain't purdy...

Scale back your CPU a bit, and switch the money into your graphics card. Look at the 7900 series, and at least a 7600 or so.

2 gig won't disappoint you.

You might want to change that case. Their standard mid-tower is a piece of junk. If you don't see the company name, be suspicious.

Only get 2GB of memory. 4GB is overkill and can end up causing lag.

If you are willing to wait up to 3-6 months for DX10 cards, and don't plan on doing much gaming until then. Then the 6200TC will do you fairly well.
