That computer should serve you well. Are you building it or is it a prebuilt?

In my opinion, the Radeon 6850 card, will be marginal for the next 6 months to a year. After that, plan on buying a new card.

The 6850 is an aging card, that's why it's so inexpensive now.

Everything else in that computer should last a number of years, and work well, with the next graphics card you buy.

What he said, and the H61 chipset is a bit long in the tooth too.
