Default Want to get a new computer but i dont know if its is good.

I know a few things about computers and the latest technology but i wanted your opinion on this computer i was thinking of buying from dell(Like is the processor good and so on.) My budget is 1300-1400(including screen) for a desktop. I left out the information which i found to be not important such as the monitor.

XPS 420: intel® Core™2 Q8200 Quad-Core (4MB L2 cache, 2.33GHz, 1333FSB)

Operating system: Vista

Memory: 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz - 4 DIMMs

Video card: ATI Radeon HD3650 256MB <---------How good is this card?

Hard Drive: 750GB - 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache

Optical Drive: Single Drive: 16X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) w/double layer write capability

Sound Card: Integrated Sound Blaster®Audigy™ HD Software Edition


Also what is No turner?

Thanks

My vote is to go with a custom build.

What do you want to use the computer for? Would you plan to OC it?

well I use my current computer(and my new one when i get it) for heavy downloading and I kinda want to start playing PC games. Also i burn alot of dvds. I buy a new computer every 5 years so i want something that would atleast be decent(ok worst then decent but i dont) in 4 years from now but my budget as i said is $1300-$1400
