No, not really at all. As a matter of fact, most of this system suks big time! Integrated video..... Integrated Sound, and a pentium processor..... ALL BLOW!! How much were you going to pay for this setup? Give me a price, and I'll find you a MUCH BETTER PC!!!

BTW, that processor suks major balls! OMG, Celerons are like the slowest, weakest processor on the market! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PAYING FOR THIS THING?? If you are paying over $299, you are getting ripped off!!! Screw this PC, give me your budget, and I give you a nice PC.

ALSO, the motherboard only has an AGP 4X SLOT!!! WTF is that crap!! That means if you ever wanted a decent graphics card, you are screwed, forget it. Trash this thing seriously man, this thing is...dare I say.... WORSE than Dell....!!!>>!>>>!>>!

Integrated video I see? What a huge mistake. And getting anything that is not AMD 64 is a mistake. If you are getting that machine off Ebay for say $199 I would say it is a good deal but that's it.

I have only this much to say to you about your PC situation.....

www.cyberpowersystem.com or www.ibuypower.com

For $600, you have a comp that could mutilate this thing 60X over. No joke, trust me.

And you call 2 80MM plenty of cooling? That's pathetic. I have 6 80MM built in fans, 2 80MM fans add-on, and a slot exhaust fan. Also, the cache on that CPU sucks big time. 128kb? Ouch.

Gian, it is a Celeron, with a 400MHz FSB...... The whole system blows ass....... OMG, 2X 80mm is good cooling!! MUHAHAH!!! This system is something that I would buy if I just needed to type papers, wait, I would at least get a P4 for that, and an MX4000 GPU..... MUHAHAH! Well, the cooling is sufficient for that CPU, being that the highest temps it will produce will be around 80 degress FARENHEIT!!! AHAH!!

I know it is a Celeron... I'm thinking he can't afford the stuff you buy, and should go with medium/high range like my machine.
