Default Opinions please

Hey all, just like to first say it's been a while since i've been on here, hope you're all good!
Anyway, to business, I'm getting myself a gaming computer soon, nothing amazing but one that can hold its own, after looking at a few custom built systems etc I came across this one, which I have decided to buy, along with a stick of 512 RAM to make it 1 gig.

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=95739

I know the card isn't immense, but it's PCI-E and easily upgradeable, and I'm content with playing games like BF2 on medium settings, so yeah, for under 450 what you reckon?

Cheers.

yeah looks good for the price!

I've had a quick look around the top shops and cant see a better system for that price. go with it!

You should give them a call and see if they will fit the extra ram for you! then.. its guarenteed compatibility for dual channel! and it takes away the risk of doing it yourself

I was going to say that!! lol

Evan if they dont it doesnt matter, just DIY.
What I do with all my computers I build for people is puy an extra HDD in there for backup of important files. Maybe you should think about that.
