Ouch! That's a pretty penny for low to mid range system.

It has a decent processor, good amount of memory and a nice drive, but the video card is an entry level card at best. It will struggle with any of the high level games out there. But if you're a light gamer and are mostly surfing, chatting and running iTunes, you should be OK with that system.

Yah.
Skip the intel.
Get a Phenom 2. Then with the money you save, get a 4850x2.
I highly recommend the ECS black series boards for budget AMD builds.
If u can afford it, get DDR3 and a DDR3 supported mobo. If not, then use an AM2+ mobo with DDR2.

The 9800GT is much better. It can run games like Crysis on med settings. I'd say that system would be a very nice performer that is capable of doing what you need it to.

It must be rough to live in Australia. The computer prices are nuts.

IMO, no.
If u went with an AMD build, you will get a much better system for cheaper.
