That is a great budget system.

You won't be able to play the newer games like BF2, Oblivion, and such on high settings but other than that, the system should perform wonderfully.

EDIT: Oh, if its within your budget, and your motherboard will support SATA, get a SerialATA150 hard drive.

Thats not bad to be honest, for a cheap system thats upgradable up to a point.

You might want to note though that for a new system, upgrading to PCI-E will be alot better if you play games since you can upgrade to newer cards later.

If you don't, then that seems pretty much okay.

Are you building the system yourself? Or is this a pre-built job?

Yeah okay

I'm pretty sure you could build it though. Just takes a bit of practise
