Actually it looks good, maybe get 2gb's of ram right now 1 is basic so might want to get 2 and stay ahead of the game

really there is nothing to change. I would have recommended a dual core instead of the 3800+ tho. That would be all.

Yes there is a x2 3800 but there is also a normal Athlon 64 that isnt dual core

yeah there is a 3800 X2 but i dont think his is, unless he overclocked to 2.4GHz and he didnt write anything about it being dual so i assume it isn't.

Overall your computer is fine, like i said maybe 2 gb's of ram if you have the money to spend if not that, you dont really need to change anything else with the system as of now

Thanks for the replies guys. It isn't a dual core, just regular Athlon 64. Have thought of OCing it, but no real reason to other than to see how far I can go with it. Typical guy thing. Adding more memory is a good idea.
