Exclamation Buying New Computer- Is this a good deal??? ?

after fumbling with the idea of building a computer for myself, or using the barebone deal etc, i have decided to just buy a computer from a local computer shop... well tell me what you think of this deal. i think its pretty good but i want to hear what you guys think


For $460 i can get:
AMD athlon dual core 4850
4GB DDR2 Ram
320 gb
dvd/rw drive
Nvidia geforce 8200 video card
Smart case (this computer is really really small, smaller then a xbox 360)
HD Tv connectivity (apparantly i can plug this computer to a hd tv and use it as a perfect quality monitor)
genuine windows vista os

Depends what you wanna use it for, it's good for that money, but if your a gamer then i would say get Intel Core 2 Duo and change the graphics card.
Other than that it's a pretty good deal...
