It's good. It will make a great system, just remember that BF2 shouldn't be played at max settings with only 1gb of mem. You'll need to decide whats more important, an extra $100 or maxed out settings in BF2.

That setup looks good, Xiggy.

And to what kchi55 said, i realize that he misinterpreted what was being asked but to comment on that point he made about it not supporting dual core processors. It will support them with a BIOS upgrade so there's no worries if you ever decide to upgrade your CPU to dual core.

You're right, 2GBs is obviously going to be better. But if you are going to buy 2GBs then go with a 2X1GB setup instead of the 4X512MB. Surely crucial makes a 1GB RAM module? But if you are just going with 1GB of memory then definitely buy 2X512MB dual channel. It's just that having 4 RAM modules will be much harder on the memory controller and putting that stress on a computer is not good for obvious reasons.

Crucial discontinued there 1gb moudules of ballistix. Really 4 x 512mb will work fine.

Although I think you should just do what we were talking about on AIM. I would just get one of these for now, then get another later.
