That vid card is fine. I'd give it a 7, because the cpu is good, the vid. card ok, and because you have a gig of ram.

Did you read the benchmarks for the 3700+? For some reason the 3500+ does better in gaming. Just wanted to let you know. Compared to the best system out there, i would give it a 5. But i wish i had that system.

Default Re: RATE this rig on 1-10 scale

i don't have it nor will i ever for my little cousin....
I have also heard that the 3500 performs btter in games, but it only has 512 L2 cache, compared to the 3700's 1 mb, so that makes it good for ocing but a little laggist in gaming right?. SO: if the 3700 was oc'ed would it beat the 3500 stock in gaming....but i think we are talking about like 2 fps...

Looks like you'll be needing a lot of storage for what you'll be doing. Get this hard drive, if you're willing to pay $350 for it, lol.

WD Caviar SE16 7200 RPM SATA: 500 GB, 7200 RPM, 16 MB Cache

But everything looks fine with what you have there.
